Most recently, Kearney endured disastrous flooding from the August 8th storms. Those residents in need of rebuilding or repairing their home can now turn to FEMA for help.
Federal Emergency Management Agency Specialists will be at Mendards on First Avenue starting Wednesday, through Monday.
Some of the information on hand includes ways to fortify the exterior of a house to better withstand wind and rain, ways to protect major appliances from flood damage and learning the ins and outs of flood insurance.
Officials estimate for every dollar spent on efforts to reduce loss, another four dollars are saved when another disaster hits.
