Kincaid floodingKINCAID—State Senator Andy Manar (D-Bunker Hill) and Representative Sue Scherer (D-Decatur) met Wednesday with city officials and visited families displaced by the flooding when they toured the flood damage.

“Even minor flooding can be damaging, what has happened in Kincaid to people’s homes is devastating. Thankfully the amazing response by city and county emergency workers and a volunteer has made a huge difference,” Manar said after touring flooded areas.

The flooding has damaged 30-40 homes and displaced numerous families. A temporary shelter has been established in South Fork High School.

Manar and Scherer met with volunteer organizations that are coordinating their aid with city and county workers.

“Our priority is that emergency services and victims of this flooding receive the necessary aid from the state. As the recovery process continues, our offices hope to assist residents by working with programs and agencies,” Manar said.
