[ARCHIVED] County Signs Disaster Declaration for Sept. 8 Flooding

Kingman County Commissioners have signed a State of Local Disaster Emergency for the county after flooding on Sept. 8. It is the second disaster declaration in the past five weeks.
The declaration will remain in effect for 10 days. County Emergency Manager Fred Simon is collecting damage estimates from townships. Most of their damage is to roads, culverts and bridges. Several cities also were affected, with damage to roads and extra hours of call back time to manage the event.
The county must meet a public damage threshold of $27,974 to be eligible for federal assistance. The State of Kansas must meet a $4 million threshold to get a Presidential disaster declaration.
The county also made a disaster declaration on Aug. 8, also for flooding.
