On August 11, 2014, Southeast Michigan sustained widespread and severe damage to public and private property caused by flooding due to excessive rainfall in a short time period. On August 12, 2014, Oakland County declared a Local State of Emergency requesting assistance from the State of Michigan.
During the week of August 26 through August 29, 2014 a team comprised of representatives from Oakland County Homeland Security Division, the Michigan State Police and FEMA conducted a Preliminary Damage Assessment (PDA) on Private Property Damages in the affected cities, going door to door, interviewing residents. Additionally, during the following week of September 3 through September 5, 2014, the same team conducted a PDA on Public Property Damages in those municipalities affected in Oakland County.
The results of both PDAs are being compiled along with PDAs from other affected Counties in Southeast Michigan and a report will be submitted to the Governor’s office for his review.
Oakland County Homeland Security Division understands the trauma that this event has caused many residents and appreciates your patience and tolerance during this process.
