Overnight June 17, 2018 the Houghton-Hancock area in the Keweenaw Peninsula received between 8 and 11 inches of rain in less than 12 hours. The hilly terrain exacerbated the drainage process and caused extreme flash flooding. Around 600 homes were affected in some way.
The mission of the Flood Recovery Project is to assist residents in their recovery from the June 2018 “Father’s Day” Flood.
Flood Recovery will work in partnership with the Keweenaw Community Foundation and Good Shepherd ELCA to continue the good words of The Portage Health Foundation which has done a tremendous job assisting 460 residents in their recovery.
