5a8de51661e7d.imageDANVILLE – State Senator Scott Bennett (D-Champaign) is working to bring more help to those affected by flood damage in his district.

Last month, flooding from heavy rainfall along rivers and in low-lying areas forced Vermilion County families to evacuate their homes and caused destruction to personal property, roads and government buildings.

Personnel from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, Illinois Emergency Management Agency, the U.S. Small Business Administration and local emergency management agencies are expected to begin assessing damages to homes and business in the area next Monday.

“These damage assessments are a good first step to take in order to get those affected by the flood all the help they need,” Bennett said. "Hopefully, we can all work together to help families and business owners across Vermilion County get back on their feet.” 

In Vermilion County, those in need of assistance can contact the Vermilion County Emergency Management Agency at (217 443-6010 or the American Red Cross at (217) 431-5600.
