FEMA Flood Registrations Approach 10,000

The Federal Emergency Management Agency says more than 9,300 Louisville area residents have registered for disaster assistance related to the August 4 flash flood.

“We’ve done about 7,700  inspections as well.    And the turnarounds have been pretty quick.   It look like about two days after going through the process,  people are having inspectors show up at their house. that’s very good news,” said Ron Whittington, a FEMA spokesperson.

Whittington says FEMA recovery centers remain open at the South Louisville Community Center at 2911 Taylor Boulevard and at the African American Heritage Center at 1701 Muhammad Ali Boulevard.

Those who sustained property damage in the flood can register with FEMA online or by phone (800-621-FEMA)  to begin the assistance process.
