Residents and businesses affected by the flood in Yellowstone County over the week of June 13 are asked to fill out a survey that will be used to assess damages from the flood.
PIO officer for the city of Billings, Victoria Hill, says Yellowstone county and surrounding jurisdictions are currently not a part of the Federal Emergency Declaration from the floods in Montana. Residents with damages on private property should still fill out the survey in case the county becomes eligible for assistance.
The Montana Department of Emergency Services will assess property damages from the flood. State and federal agencies will also use the information gathered to evaluate damages.
Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Assessment for Public Assitance arrives in Billings Friday to determine if Yellowstone County should be included in the Emergency declaration. If the county is eligible, FEMA may assist local businesses, households, and individuals affected by the flood.
