Flood Guidance

Due to recent flooding events Portage County has issued several public notifications.  If damage is sustained to private businesses or residences, the most important thing is to document and take pictures of the damage.  Next, contact your home or business insurance carrier to report the damage.  Please call 211 to report damage as well.  At this time Portage County has not met the qualifications to meet Federal Individual Assistance for residential damages.

Please click on the media release below to view a guidance document from Portage County Health and Human Services regarding flood safety and cleanup.
