Rep. Kandrevas Offers Assistance in Wake of Major Flood

Legislator announces his office will assist constituents

State Representative Andrew J. Kandrevas (D-Southgate) announced today that his office is open to provide assistance to House District 13 residents following the devastating flood in metro Detroit. He also stated that local, county and state officials continue to address this unforeseen and unprecedented crisis, and he applauds their efforts to assist the district and its residents.

Record rainfall led to an unprecedented flood in the region. This led to Gov. Rick Snyder declaring a “state of disaster” for Southeast Michigan, and now steps are being taken to request federal assistance. The next step is for the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to conduct a joint Preliminary Damage Assessment with state and local officials to review damages and response costs.

“The cities in my district are working diligently to respond to the aftermath of this flood, and are taking the necessary precautions to ensure the safety of the many affected residents. I applaud the hard work our city officials, the Michigan State Police and the Michigan Department of Transportation have taken to address this unfortunate event,” Kandrevas said. “I want everyone in my district to know that assistance is available during this crisis, and I encourage residents to use the services being offered.”
