BISMARCK, N.D. — When flood waters finally go down, people are eager to start cleaning up and getting things back to normal. People who have applied for assistance with FEMA want to have their homes inspected right away to find out what assistance they may be able to receive. But inspectors can only do a full report when there is no standing water left in the home. So applicants are advised to wait to make an appointment until the inspector can complete the job in one call.
