Crawford County will likely get FEMA funding for roads, bridges

By Ted Pennekamp

Crawford County Emergency Government Director Jim Hackett told the Crawford County Board Tuesday morning that the county will almost certainly get FEMA assistance for the flood and rain damages caused by the storms of Sept. 21 and 22.

“We will reach the threshold,” said Hackett, who noted that the threshold for the 12-county area that sustained damages to roads, bridges and other public infrastructure is $8.5 million. Hackett said  Vernon County will go over $6 million. An estimate, as of Sept. 29, for Crawford County was $3,463,950. “It’s a matter of when, not if,” said Hackett about the possibility of receiving FEMA funding.

The 12 counties include Adams, Chippewa, Clark, Columbia, Crawford, Eau Claire, Jackson, La Crosse, Monroe, Richland, Vernon and Wood.

Due to heavy rain on Sept. 21 and Sept. 22, there was a train derailment with no injuries, widespread damage and two fatalities in southwest Wisconsin.
