WEST LAFAYETTE, IN A Purdue University Cooperative Extension Service IP video event at 2 p.m. May 5 will answer questions from victims of heavy flooding, and experts from Purdue and the Indiana State Department of Health will teach both victims and volunteers helping with flood cleanup how to fight mold and how to stay safe and healthy while removing it, according to Media Newswire.
"We have talked with the case managers of the long-term recovery committees active in Indiana, and mold issues still remain from 2008 and new mold issues are arising in houses flooded in 2009," said Steve Cain, Purdue Extension specialist and president of the Indiana Voluntary Organization Active in Disaster, according to the article.

The event is free and will be offered at several Purdue Extension offices throughout the state, the release said.
