DANE COUNTY (WKOW) — More than a dozen federal teams are in Wisconsin right now, looking at damage after historic flooding and tornadoes came through about a month ago.
17 teams from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) are working on damage estimates. Two of those teams were in Dane County on Monday, looking at properties in Shorewood Hills and Mazomanie.
“This step in the process, we’re doing these assessments with the state with local officials. That information is going to be put together. It will go to the state of Wisconsin and be used to decide whether or not to seek a federal disaster declaration,” said Dan Shulman, FEMA spokesperson.
FEMA will examine damage in Black Earth on Tuesday. Then, all the teams will move north to Sauk, Vernon, Juneau and Adams counties.
