FEMA and Kentucky Emergency Management personnel will be conducting preliminary storm damage assessments in Union, Crittenden, Webster and other counties caused by severe flooding in July, pursuant to a request from the Commonwealth of Kentucky.

According to a release from Kentucky Emergency Management, they are requesting assessments for a total of 23 counties, including the local counties of Crittenden, Daviess, Hopkins, Livingston, McLean, Union and Webster for the storm event which began on July 3, 2016 and continued through July 9, 2016. Officials say this stalled system contained multiple severe storms, torrential rain, severe wind, hail, and tornadoes. The other counties included are: Adair, Butler, Caldwell, Calloway, Christian, Clay, Edmonson, Hart, Lawrence, Lyon, Marshall, McCracken, Metcalfe, Ohio, Todd, and Trigg.

Pursuant to the request, state officials say FEMA will be sending personnel to the Commonwealth to begin joint assessments with members from Kentucky Emergency Management, state agencies, and local government officials to survey damages and review storm-related expense documentation.
