Federal assistance sought for flood-damaged homes

January 31, 1996

Carroll County emergency officials are seeking federal financial assistance for residents whose homes were damaged by floods this month, said Buddy Redman, the county's administrator of public safety.

Mr. Redman said several homes and two businesses in Detour and four homes in Union Bridge were damaged when creeks overflowed the weekend of Jan. 19.

No damage estimates were available.

Emergency officials are surveying fire companies to determine the extent of flood damage throughout the county, he said.

Mr. Redman said he did not know how much financial assistance, if it is approved, might be available to homeowners and businesses.
