Many homeowners in Northwest Indiana have had some major flooding problems over the last month. Today, President Bush declared Lake County a major disaster area. He ordered Federal aid to supplement State and local recovery efforts in the area struck by severe storms and flooding from September 12-14.

Assistance can include grants for temporary housing and home repairs, low-cost loans to cover uninsured property losses, and other programs to help people and business owners recover from the flooding.

Homeowners and business owners who sustained losses can apply for assistance starting tomorrow (October 11th) on-line at www.fema.gov or by
calling 1-800-621-FEMA. The toll-free telephone number will operate from 8AM-6PM CT.
