Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Small Business Administration (SBA), and Kentucky Emergency Management (KyEM) have been in the area for damage assessment.
Last Friday, March 23, 2918 FEMA, SBA, and KyEM were in the area for Individual Assistance (IA) Damage Assessment.
Yesterday March 26, 2018 FEMA and KyEM were in the area for Public Assistance (PA) Damage Assessment.
Now that FEMA and KyEM have all the damage assessment information, they will be completing a Kentucky Damage Assessment Package for the 2018 Flooding to include the Spottsville/Reed area.
This Package will be forwarded to Washington D.C. for a possible Presidential Declaration.
A signed Presidential Declaration is required before Federal assistance can be reimbursed according to FEMA’s Damage Assessment Report.
All this could possibly take several weeks or more to complete the process.
If a Presidential Declaration is signed by President Trump, a FEMA Forward Field Office (FFO) will be set up in the Spottsville/Reed area with a FEMA phone number to call for information and assistance on claim status.
We will post additional information here and share it on Social Media as updates occur.
