Storm assistance available in Benton County

VINTON (KWWL) -

People are still cleaning up after strong storms rolled across eastern Iowa last week.

The Benton County Disaster Recovery Coalition has been re-activated to help people get back on their feet. The group played a large role in Benton County during the floods of 2008.

The recovery coalition helps people find temporary housing, clothing, food, and other immediate needs.

Just like after the floods, members of the coalition expect this to be a long-term rebuilding effort.

"We certainly do expect this to be not something that's over in a week. It will take some time for insurance adjusters to get out for trees to be removed. It will be a long term process," said Pastor Karen Larson, the Corresponding Secretary for the Benton County Disaster Recovery Coalition

If you are from Benton County and in need of assistance you can call the Benton County Disaster Recovery Coalition at 319-241-5121 to get assistance.
