FEMA Assistance for September 2016 Floods
Residents of Blue Earth, Freeborn, Hennepin, Le Sueur, Rice, Steele and Waseca counties who suffered damages to their dwellings in the September 21-24, 2016, severe storms and flooding are encouraged to register for federal disaster assistance.
Insurance may cover some of the damage, but people may be missing out on additional assistance if they haven’t registered with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Until a resident registers for assistance, FEMA has no way of knowing who suffered damages or what people need to help in their recovery. The only way to determine eligibility for federal disaster assistance is to register with FEMA.
Keep in mind:
- Calling your insurance agent does not register you with FEMA.
- Contacting county or municipal agencies does not register you with FEMA.
- Receiving assistance from voluntary agencies does not register you with FEMA.
Shorewood residents who were affected by the flooding may register at www.disasterassistance.gov, with the FEMA app, or by calling 1-800-621-3362 (FEMA). TTY users may call 1-800-462-7585. The toll-free telephone numbers will operate from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. seven days a week.

Floodplain Regulations Affecting Shorewood
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) oversees the Federal Floodplain Regulations across the nation. They have recently updated the flood insurance rate maps (FIRMS) for Shorewood as well as completed the Hennepin County Flood Insurance Study. Both of these will become effective on November 4, 2016. As a result, the City of Shorewood is required to update our floodplain regulations consistent with the federal regulations in order to continue participation in the flood insurance program.
