If the damage in uninsured, residents may be eligible for federal relief.

Local Emergency Management Agencies are asking residents who incurred uninsured flood damage to report this damage to their county EMA, and to the Indiana Department of Homeland Security. The IDHS will use the information to see if residents are eligible for federal relief.

Officials in Monroe County signed an emergency disaster declaration earlier this week, and hope to secure federal funding to assist in the re-building of dozens of roads, mainly in the southern part of the county.

Residents who need to report flood damage to the IDHS can file online at http://in.gov/dhs
