Governor Mike Parson has requested FEMA, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, participate in joint preliminary damage assessments. The assessments are for 17 counties, including Livingston, Carroll, Caldwell, and Chariton Counties in the KCHI listening area. The assessments will be for damages due to severe storms and flooding from June 19th to July 1st.
The Preliminary Assessment teams will include local emergency managers and representatives from the State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA) and FEMA. Working together, the teams will document damage to public infrastructure and estimate recovery costs.
Following the assessments, the governor plans to request federal disaster assistance.
