Followup from storm damage on June 28, 2024

Posted Jul 09, 2024 5:55 PM

Those individuals residing in Geary County who suffered any type of storm damage during the evening hours on Friday, June 28 are asked to report their damage.

This includes the cities of Junction City and Grandview Plaza.

Geary County Emergency Management has teamed up with Kansas Division of Emergency Management and United Way 2-1-1 to find out how many individuals received damage. The damages we are looking at include roof and wall damage from trees and/or wind, water in the basements, and any other type of weather related damage from that night’s storm. We are not looking for downed trees, unless it damaged a building or vehicle.

Please call United Way at 2-1-1 and provide them with the information. They will be collecting the information starting today and will end on Wednesday July 24. You can also contact the Geary County United Way and provide them with the information.

Once this information is collected, the State will see if there is enough damage locally to apply for assistance through the Small Business Administration for small interest loans or other assistance.
