Marshall County shares more relief funds, assistance programs

PLYMOUTH, Ind. ---The county emergency management agency is urging flood victims to apply for a federal insurance program.

Officials with the Marshall County Emergency Management agency posted the following Facebook message on Tuesday: 

Clyde Avery, the Marshall County Emergency manager, said his team is still doing damage assessments around the county. He said once they are finished, reports will be sent to the state where Governor Eric Holcomb can make a request to FEMA for federal assistance.

“It could be 3 days, it could be 60 days,” Avery said. “In my past experience, you know, even once the request has been submitted to FEMA, they can reject it.”

Avery said if the request is rejected, there’s an appeal process that has to be followed. He said the community is helping to supply funding for disaster relief.

“I know there are a lot of folks that are contributing to various organizations to help supply the funding for disaster relief,” Avery said.

The agency put up a Facebook post, seen below, that gives out more information on local relief efforts:
