La Crosse, Vernon, Crawford, Richland, Monroe, Juneau, and Adams counties faced continued flooding, washouts, mudslides and extreme weather over the weekend

La Crosse – U.S. Rep. Ron Kind is urging Wisconsinites impacted or displaced by flooding or severe storms to contact his office for assistance in working with federal agencies.  Rep. Kind’s office can connect constituents with the appropriate relief to begin the recovery process. 

Residents can call Rep. Kind’s office toll-free: 1-888-442-8040 or visit kind.house.gov for more information about services available to constituents.

“Continued rain and flooding over the weekend is making the cleanup process even more challenging for many people across Wisconsin,” said Rep. Ron Kind. “My office remains open and ready to help Wisconsinites in need, and can connect flood victims with the appropriate relief to begin the recovery process. If you or someone you know is looking for help or has questions, I urge you to call my office at 1-888-442-8040.”

Last week, Rep. Kind toured communities across western and central Wisconsin impacted by heavy flooding and storms, including the Town of Leon, Readstown, Chaseburg, Coon Valley, and Gays Mills. He partnered with U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin in calling on President Trump to put the full support of the federal government behind cleanup and recovery efforts in Wisconsin, including additional assistance from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for damage assessments, road and bridge repair assistance from the Department of Transportation (DOT), and farm and crop damage assistance from the Department of Agriculture (USDA).
