On 6/20/18 Southwestern PA suffered major losses due to a summer storm that caused substantial flooding. Mt. Lebanon along with Allegheny County both declared disasters for our community. Residents who suffered damage may have the ability to apply for assistance in certain circumstances. Below are some general guidelines from PEMA and FEMA that explains the process.
If you have damage, please take photos and estimate your repair costs as you recover from the floods. If an Individual Assistance Program is approved, you will need this information in the future.
Of note, many previous floods in our area have not been approved for Individual Assistance unless the water levels reached the first floor or above. This does not automatically disqualify you today, however, this is a benchmark that has been used in the past.
