The North Dakota Department of Emergency Services is planning preliminary damage assessments for five North Dakota counties affected by spring flooding.

The assessment process is the initial step taken to determine North Dakota's eligibility for individual disaster-assistance aid.

Initial counties to be inspected this week are Burleigh, Emmons, Mercer, Morton and Oliver.

North Dakotans experiencing flood damages to their homes should:

- Take photos and video of the damage;

- Contact your insurance agent to see what damages may be covered, including a check to see if their policies have a sewer backup rider.

It is important to properly account for damages because it will affect how accurately individuals are reimbursed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency in the event federal assistance is granted for individuals.
