LaPorte County is going to apply for federal flood relief.

An emergency declaration was made for flooded areas primarily near the

Kankakee River.

LaPorte County Commissioner Rich Mrozinski says federal funds could

help absorb monetary losses in areas like overtime and damage to roads.

Property owners could also be reimbursed.

Mrozinski says federal funds will be applied for once all of the damage estimates

have been tallied.
