Kentland Flood 2020

If you do not have the capabilities or need assistance, you may go to the Kentland Library during normal business hours or the Kentland Community Center from the hours of 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm. This is not limited to only Kentland residents, anyone living within Newton County that experienced damage from the flooding in the county should register as well.

It is important to register at www.in211.org and take photos/videos marking water heights in the homes and damages, plus estimate amounts from contractors of damages. Then download the pictures and videos and save them as they will be needed later.

Once the damage assessment is near completion, Newton County will need to meet certain criteria.  This is the reason for timely entry of the damage assessment.  The County will then send the assessment to the State and in turn, file and start the process of needs declaration.  The Town and County have already started the process by having signed and filed the local emergency proclamation. As we enter in each stage and progress, we will be communicating through various methods listed below.
