EDEN Hosted eXtension Chat 

On April 7, the eXtension Disaster Issues Community hosted its first chat session on flood recovery. During the session, participants posted their questions about drying out homes and other building structures; mold, mildew, what to keep, what to discard; state and federal resources for recovery; and other related items. Our disaster issues experts answered the questions via text chat. This session was sponsored by the Extension Disaster Education Network (EDEN). A summary of the session follows. Go to to read the unedited transcript.

On hand to answer questions were Dr. Claudette Reichel, Dr. Kenneth Hellevang, Eric Evans, and Steve Cain .

The above notice was copied from the eXtension source page on October 4, 2009. Visit that page for an edited transcript of the dialogue.
