Flood Recovery

Whether your home has flooded or your basement is wet or if it's just a flooded landscape and property, recovering can be an overwhelming task.

Flood Recovery Photo NDSU Extension has a website full of resources to help in the clean up! Information, instructions, videos, moisture meters, and specialists available to you at http://www.ag.ndsu.edu/flood

North Dakotans whose homes have been affected in any way by water this spring (even major basement seepage, not just true flooding) need to report it for the state to have any chance of full federal disaster declarations and reimbursements. Please report any and all flood/water damage at the ND Flood Damage Hotline, 1-877-212-0316.

Hotline hours are 7:00 am to 7:00 pm (CT). Callers will be directed through a series of simple questions. The call should only take a few minutes. Those impacted will also be referred to volunteer agencies that are providing assistance if necessary.

Recovery After Disaster: The Family Financial Toolkit

The 2011 flood disaster wreaked havoc on the financial well-being of those in its path. As individuals and families go through the process of recovery many complex financial decisions will need to be made. Flood survivors require information and knowledge to make the best decisions and choices for their situation. The Recovery After Disaster: The Family Financial Toolkit discusses strategies and provides tools that can help flood survivors move along the road towards financial recovery. You can access the full Toolkit here, as well as additional information . The Toolkit is designed in units so disaster survivors can use just the units needed or the entire toolkit as their situation requires.

The tools provided in this Financial Toolkit are designed to help families make decisions that are best for their family. Family financial recovery is a long-term process, and decisions made at the time of a natural disaster can affect the financial well-being of survivors for a lifetime.
