Patti Thompson, spokeswoman for the state’s emergency management agency, said the state’s current deadline is Friday. However, the state has asked for an extension to March 14.
She said she didn’t know if FEMA would approve the extension.
Thompson said the state emergency management agency needs more time to go through the information collected when EMA personnel was in the area assessing damage from the floods.
They were in the area to determine if there was enough damage to warrant federal assistance.
St. Clair County’s Emergency Management Agency posted on its Facebook page that people who still need to have their damage documented may call 618-825-2682.
“If they think there’s more out there we didn’t see, it would be good for them to know that and to let us know that,” Thompson said.
