Asking Mercer County Residents (including all cities) with any Flood Damages from August 16 – 17th, to Report them to the Mercer County Emergency Management Office!

The Mercer County Emergency Manager is asking all Mercer County Residents to include all cities, that had flood damages over the past weekend to sent via email (creed@nd.gov) or call (745-3302) and give your name, phone number you can be reached and your address of where damages were done with a brief description of what happened. For example, how far did the water come up in your basement or house? Please email me at creed@nd.gov or call and leave message if I am not there at 745-3302. There are no guarantees, but the more information I can get, the better chance we have to possibly get some help from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Right now the state and counties/cities have no way to help private citizens with flooding damages. If you have flood insurance you will need to contact your insurance agent and work with them.
