FEMA Representatives at Webbers Falls City Hall

Representatives from FEMA are now on the ground in Webbers Falls to help assist flood victims.

FEMA representatives will be set up in a mobile unit at Webbers Falls City Hall from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily until crowds start diminishing, according to MaryLynn Lufkin, director of outreach and disaster relief for Catholic Charities Eastern Oklahoma.

“… All residents of Muskogee County … need to go and register with FEMA as soon as they can in order to possibly qualify for financial assistance with their damage from the flooding,” Lufkin said.

Muskogee County Commissioner Ken Doke said cleanup has begun, and the Red Cross has provided cleanup kits. The kits are available at Webbers Falls City Hall. He said both cleaning supplies and cleanup volunteers are needed in Webbers Falls.
“This is a great opportunity for church youth groups, civic organizations, businesses, and individuals to step up and help in a big way,” Doke said. 

Muskogee County Health Department has been having Tetanus Shot Clinics all week throughout the county.

Muskogee County Emergency Management has ordered roll-off dumpsters that can be used free of charge in the areas that flooded. Roll-offs should start arriving this week, Doke said.
