Flood status: How flood victims can apply for help
From Crystal Staley
As of August 1, 2022 the death toll from the flooding in Eastern KY has risen to over 30 men, women and children.
Details on how to apply for assistance and what information will be asked for are below. For the approved counties, applications can be filed online at disasterassistance.gov, by calling 800-621-3362 or by using the FEMA mobile app. If you use a relay service, such as video relay (VRS), captioned telephone or other service, give FEMA the number for that service.
Gov. Beshear said it will be important when applying for assistance to have critical information in hand, including:
A current phone number where you can be contacted;
Your address at the time of the disaster and the address where you are now staying;
Your Social Security number;
A general list of damage and losses;
Banking information if you choose direct deposit; and
If insured, the policy number or the agent and/or company name.
Take photos to document damage and begin cleanup and repairs to prevent further damage. Remember to keep receipts from all purchases related to the cleanup and repair.
Please note phone lines are extremely busy right now. It may take a while to get through.
A command staging area has been established at the Hazard Armory for emergency personnel only. The public should not travel to the affected areas until emergency personnel gives the all-clear.
Team Eastern Kentucky Flood Relief Fund
As of 7:30 a.m. EDT on Aug. 1, there have been 12,035 donations to the Team Eastern Kentucky Flood Relief Fund, totaling $1,534,308.30. To donate, visit TeamEKYfloodrelieffund.ky.gov. The fund is fully transparent and the first distribution of funds will go toward paying for each victim's funeral.
Flags Lowered in Honor of Victims
Gov. Beshear announced today that he is ordering flags at all state buildings to fly at half-staff for one week (ending Aug. 8) in honor of the victims of the Eastern Kentucky floods.
