St. George, Utah (AP) -- Flood-devastated homeowners in Southern Utah may have to depend on donations with no help expected from the government.

The Virgin River-Santa Clara River Flood Relief group is asking for donations to help residents rebuild or relocate after last month's flooding.

The organization will also use proceeds from a St. George-produced D-V-D and book that will chronicle the historic floods.

The group's president says about 75-thousand dollars has been raised so far. He hopes to raise at least 2 (M)million dollars.

The organization also plans to persuade mortgage holders to forgive up to 8 (M)million dollars in debt.

The total damage from the floods is estimated at 150 (M)million dollars to 180 (M)million dollars.
