Three federal flood insurance assistance meetings have been scheduled for communities in southeast South Dakota.
Officials with the South Dakota Office of Emergency Management, the Federal Emergency Management Agency and other agencies will answer flood-related questions and discuss how to obtain National Flood Insurance Program coverage to protect from future flooding events. The National Weather Service will also give a forecast of the next couple of months.
“Citizens, especially those who live in flood-prone areas, are encouraged to use these meetings as a way to learn more about the flood insurance program in order to better protect themselves and their property during future floods,” said OEM director Tina Titze.
The meetings are open to the public and will be held April 8-10. A meeting will be held at the North Sioux City Hall from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on April 9.
On April 8, at the Sioux Falls Downtown Library in Room B from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and on Wednesday in Brookings at the Brookings City & County Government Center Room 310 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
