Stats for flood damage in Greene County staff
Updated: 2016-01-08 14:45:15
SPRINGFIELD - Greene County experienced record-breaking rainfall on December 26-28, 2015. A total of 120 water rescues took place during this event. Two fatalities occurred in Greene County. No other injuries were reported.

The Springfield-Greene County Office of Emergency Management catalogued a total of 656 damage reports as early January 5, 2016. Of these reports, 630 were residential, 16 were commercial, and 10 were agriculture related.

Representatives from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA) and the Small Business Administration (SBA) will be in the area over the next several weeks to conduct additional detailed damage assessments to determine what levels of federal assistance may be made available to affected citizens.

A preliminary estimate for public safety response and public infrastructure damage, which includes water rescues, road damages, debris removal, utilities, parks, schools, and government buildings is $982,786.00. This estimate is subject to change as assessments will continue as the water recedes.

For further information contact Erin Hedlun, information officer, Springfield-Greene County Office of Emergency Management at (417) 869-6040.
