Water is starting to recede in the county and clean up is beginning. EMA Coordinator, Jared Johnson stated that there is a 45 day deadline for making applications. His concern is for those people that winter away from O’Brien County and may not be aware of damage to their home. If you know someone that has been gone for an extended time, reach out to them and make sure they have someone checking on their home.
The end date for the Iowa Individual Disaster Assistance Grant Program is April 29, 2019.
