Missoula Co. hosts flood relief open house
MISSOULA, Mont. —
Missoula County is partnering with local disaster agencies to help answer questions residents have about flooding. An open house at the Salvation Army ran until 8 p.m. Wednesday.
The open house format aims to get official information out to homeowners impacted by flooding.
Residents will learn about septic systems, wells and mosquitoes. There will be 12 agencies in attendance.
“We have our COAD partners -- community organizations active in disasters -- that will talk about mucking out houses and cleanup kits and how to go about cleaning up, where to put your sandbags and try and answer as many questions as folks may have,” said project manager Nick Holloway.
The process consists of a referral system, meaning they can find out what resources are available and get contact information to follow up.
