Property owners affected by this summer’s flooding asked to complete survey

Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) - St. Louis County is working to create a Preliminary Damage Assessment from this summer’s flooding in the northern part of the county, and is asking property owners who’ve been affected to complete a short survey.

The survey asks for information on the type of severity of damage sustained.

The county will compile the information received and submit it to the State of Minnesota and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

Property owners can access the survey through the county’s website: stlouiscountymn.gov, or can request a survey by mail by contacting the St. Louis County Sheriff’s Emergency Management Division at (218) 625-3960 or leep@stlouiscountymn.gov.

The deadline to complete the survey is July 16. Property owners should be aware that the survey is not an application, and there’s no guarantee that it will result in flood assistance from either the state or federal government.

Heavy and continued rains earlier this summer has led to flooding throughout the state.

The hardest hit areas in St. Louis County are properties near Lake Kabetogama, the Ash River Trail and Crane Lake.
