Disaster Recovery and Clean-Up, Information for Residents
Lake County has received a State disaster proclamation due to the widespread flooding in our region. This can open the door for federal assistance. Disaster recovery is a multi-step process starting with an initial damage assessment, which is now underway. Lake County is working with local municipalities and the Illinois Emergency Management Agency (IEMA) to conduct the assessment. The US Civil Air Patrol is currently capturing aerial photography of the flooded areas.
We need a complete and accurate damage assessment report that includes damages incurred in both incorporated and unincorporated Lake County. The detail within this report will help determine eligibility for federal assistance.
