Damage Assessments Continuing After Illinois Flood

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Damage assessments done across Illinois after last month's flooding have found nearly 3,700 damaged homes in 14 counties.

The Illinois Department of Emergency Management says state and federal teams have spent nearly two weeks surveying homes. The effort includes four state teams, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the U.S. Small Business Administration and local officials.

IEMA director Jonathon Monken says flooding impacted 49 counties in Illinois. He says teams are continuing to collect information needed to apply for federal assistance. President Barack Obama approved federal assistance Friday for 11 Illinois counties.

State and federal teams also have started meeting with local government officials to document flood-related expenses.
