LAKE COUNTY, Ohio -- Lake County leaders are asking residents whose homes suffered extreme structural damage in the July 20 storm and flooding to call 211 for an assessment.
A minimum of 25 homes must meet standards in order for the area to be considered for certain funding.
The 211 number should no longer be used to report water damage.
A state of emergency has been declared and sent to the state for consideration of disaster area status.
Fees at the landfills in Willowick and Painesville will be waived so residents may safely dispose of damaged or contaminated items. Hours at the landfills will also be extended.
The Lake County Board of Commissioners and Emergency Management Agency as well as other representatives involved in the flood recovery offered resources and additional information at a news conference.
