Assessment teams travel to neighborhoods in Dearborn to gather information on flood damage



DEARBORN, Mich. – Teams of city workers are door-to-door in the east and southeast of Dearborn on Sunday to get an initial estimate of the number of homes that have suffered flood damage.

Teams will ask very brief questions as part of the process and will not go inside the houses.

This preliminary data will be used when the city initially seeks assistance from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, and is not meant to be a comprehensive damage assessment or claims process for individual homeowners.
