[ARCHIVED] State, Federal Agencies Team with Midland Local Government to Begin Flood Damage Assessments

July 5, 2017 - Midland County Emergency Management Office, in coordination with the State of Michigan, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and Local Government agencies, will be deploying damage assessment teams on Thursday, July 6th throughout the City and County of Midland.

Individuals on these teams will have proper identification and will be verifying the structural damages that residents have reported thus far to the City and County Offices. While specific times and areas have not been determined, teams will be going to areas that have the most significant levels of damages as well as those areas with large numbers of damage reports. If you are not home, don’t worry, the teams will be canvassing large areas and getting a big picture assessment of damages.

Teams will be deployed over the next few days and will be working 12-hour days to cover the needed areas. These teams will not be requesting payment or application information. These teams are follow up to the teams that the City sent out earlier today.

This part of the assessment process will help FEMA and the State determine if a formal request for federal assistance will be made. This and other determinations made, will be shared through future press releases by the City and County.

Residents are encouraged to safely clean their homes and document their losses (photos are great) and any expenses that they incur. If financial assistance programs are made available, information will be announced at a later date.

Information will be updated as it is available.
