FEMA to Assess Idaho Flood Damage

Posted By on Mon, Jul 5, 2010 at 11:14 AM

Representatives from the Federal Emergency Management Agency are heading to Idaho to coordinate damage assessments in the counties affected by June's wicked weather. Federal, state and local representatives will span out to conduct four concurrent investigations later this week.

You may remember in early June when high winds, heavy rains and floods swept through Central and Western Idaho. Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter requested that FEMA conduct preliminary damage assessments to trigger a possible presidential disaster declaration. That, in turn, could generate up to $2 million in federal disaster assistance.

Beginning Wednesday, July 6, four teams will get their marching orders. Team No. 1 will cover Lewis and Idaho counties; Team No. 2 will cover Valley County; Team No. 3 will cover Adams County; Team No. 4 will cover Gem, Payette and Washington counties.
