RIDGWAY, Pa. -- State emergency management officials and aid agencies are in Elk County surveying damage and compiling reports as residents work to cleanup from Wednesday's historic flooding.
Elk County Emergency Management Director Mike McAllister said Thursday teams from the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency and American Red Cross were working to assess damage and determine what, if any, aid may be available for homeowners and businesses.
PEMA officials are working to determine financial costs and structural damages that may have been caused, McAllister said. The Red Cross is working to determine more immediate needs for residents, such as food, clothing and shelter.
"What we're doing today is working with PEMA and the Red Cross to go around and do damage assessment of the community, industry, businesses and residences to identify how much damage has occurred so we can collect that information," McAllister said.
McAllister said the agencies were expected to be in the community for several days.
