Guidelines for FEMA Individual Assistance Program
The State Emergency Management Office has asked for assistance in locating individuals sustaining flood damage to their PRIMARY residence or Business in Kingsbury County as a result of the heavy snow and rain we incurred between March 13 and April 26th. This would include damage from runoff, saturated ground, sewer backup and roof damage. They will be looking for water levels that were about 18" or more in basements or main levels of homes and businesses. If you have pictures of the damage or receipts if you have already made repairs this is helpful. Outbuildings are not considered unless they are part of a business. There is a questionnaire spreadsheet that is available in the County Auditor's office in De Smet or you can access it by clicking on the link below. Please call the Kingsbury County EM office at 854-3711 if you feel you would qualify for assistance. Please return your completed form as soon as possible to the Auditor's office or email to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Inspectors may be here as soon as the end of the week.
