BISMARCK, N.D. -- Protect your home and your bank account from the ravages of flooding at the Community Mitigation Workshop to be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Monday, June 8 at the Wahpeton Community Center.
On hand to discuss flood maps, flood-fighting home improvement projects, benefits of flood insurance, possible funding sources and other issues will be Mayor Jim Sturdevant, mitigation experts from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and a loan specialist from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA).
They will talk and answer questions about steps people can take to protect their homes inside and out from the effects of floods, severe storms and other weather-related threats - from landscaping to wiring and from do-it-yourself projects to more complicated work that could require a contractor.
The meeting will take place in the Wahpeton Community Center, 304 Fifth St. South, N.D.
