FEMA has announced that mitigation specialists will be hosting workshops in Illinois on small projects that can be taken by homeowners to help reduce flooding impacts.
Homeowners, service clubs, civic organizations and others in areas affected by basement flood damage are encouraged to attend a workshop. The workshops will feature a narrated presentation followed by a question and answer session.
Workshops will be held in Chicago, Glenview and Northbrook during the next two weeks.
