South Dakotan’s asked to submit data on flood damage

The South Dakota Office of Emergency Management is collecting damage data from residents and businesses that have experienced flood related damage. The information provided will be used to seek a Presidential Disaster Declaration for Individual Assistance and a Small Business Administration Rural Agency Disaster Declaration.

Photographs showing the damage are crucial and should be included in the form submission. The deadline for submitting damage data is July 12, 2024. Completing the form does not guarantee that assistance will become available.

Residents who experienced damage will select the residential damage form and businesses who experienced damage will select the commercial damage form. Officials say it is important to fill out the form completely and accurately.
