Flooding disaster assistance may be coming to New Mexicans through FEMA


“We understand the folks in these impacted areas are going through a difficult time. The state is preparing a request to add flooding as a hazard,” Eslinger said.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency is still working to provide disaster relief for New Mexicans affected by historic wildfire, and they could be adding to how they can help. As of right now, wildfire damage is the only thing that qualifies for that FEMA help, but as monsoon season brings flooding to burn scars, they’re prepared to add flooding to the federal disaster declaration.
