July 24, 2017 - On Friday, June 23rd, Midland County experienced an historic rain event, which in turn caused widespread flooding across the community. This flooding has impacted many families and local businesses in a number of ways, leaving many residents without basic necessities or even access to their homes.
Due to the overwhelming support of our neighbors and community partners, some help is now available for those who have been impacted by the recent flood – regardless of income. If you received damage to items such as water heaters, washing machines, clothes dryers, furnaces, or mattresses, you may receive assistance for replacing these items. Residents should dial 2-1-1 by Monday, July 31 to register for this assistance.
Midland County is hopeful to hear an announcement soon from President Trump about the availability of federal assistance programs following Governor Snyder’s request for assistance on Friday, July 21.
We are grateful to be part of a community where our residents help each other in times of need. Thank you to all who have made donations and volunteered their time thus far to assist in flood recovery efforts.
