The Federal Emergency Management Agency may reimburse Monroe County residents for storm-related damage if enough is reported.

The city of Bloomington is encouraging homeowners, renters and businesses to report any damage from recent weather. Monroe County Emergency Management is collecting these reports and will give them to the State of Indiana who will report them to FEMA, according to a press release.

FEMA will determine if emergency funds will be allocated to Monroe County depending on the number of damage reports. 

Damage to houses, apartments, duplexes and trailers should be reported, the release said. The report will not ensure reimbursement.

Reports can be made online or by calling 812-349-2997 and leaving contact information.
