JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – Beginning this week, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will be involved in helping victims of last week’s flash flooding.

FEMA, as well as other federal and state agencies, will meet with flood victims in St. Louis City and County, plus St. Charles and Montgomery counties, for preliminary damage assessments (PDAs).

Those who have experienced flood- and storm-related damage should report it to their local emergency management agency if they haven’t already. Additional joint damage assessments can be conducted in more Missouri counties if additional information is documented locally.

Several multi-agency resource centers will be opened this week:
