Minnesota Homeland Security and Emergency Management officials are requesting damages to private property due to recent flooding.
All property owners in Pennington County who sustained flood damage to their private property from April 22, 2022, to present, are asked to complete a damage assessment survey by no later than Monday, July 18th.
Damages must be to primary homes (non-agricultural). Damage must be in an essential living space. FEMA’s definition of an essential living space is as follows: “a room within a home that serves the function of a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, and/or living room that is regularly occupied or used by one or more members of the household and requires repair to bring its functionality back to the home.” You are also requested to list any damages to privately owned driveways, roads, bridges, wells, and septic tanks.
It has not yet been determined if federal assistance will be made available to private property owners. People are asked to complete the survey should assistance be made available. The survey is acessible by clicking on survey (above) or on the attachment below.
For more information on obtaining and submitting a Private Property Damage Assessment form, please contact Erik Beitel at 218-683-7087 or [email protected] or the Pennington County Website.
