State assessing flood damage in Peoria County
“When the assessment teams do get there...expect that they will be asking you questions trying to understand the impact, how quickly it happens, find out where the water levels were in the home, usually there’s marking in the house where you can see it,” Monken says.
“If you have any pictures that you want to provide them, you're certainly welcome to do that, that always helps. But if you can make yourself available that’s an important thing.”
Monken says assessment teams will survey more than 300 homes near Chillicothe through next week. The state will use the flood-related data to request federal assistance that could allow counties to seek 75-percent reimbursement of eligible costs.
