Dalrymple Calls on FEMA

Posted: Updated:

Initial assessments conducted by emergency management officials show total flood damages are exceeding FEMA's threshold of $1 Million for federal cost-share assistance.

Governor

Jack Dalrymple has requested the Federal Emergency Management Agency assist state and local officials in assessing the damages cause by overland flooding in several areas of the state.

Dalrymple says torrential rains in excess of 10 inches in some areas led to flooding that damaged roadways and other public infrastructure, including state and U.S. highways near Antler and Coleharbor.

In some areas the flooding was so bad the road was either washed away or had to be cut out to relieve threats to nearby homes.

Dalrymple also says he will continue working with local officials and FEMA to move forward on repairs and other flood-recovery assistance.
