15 June 2019 – An initial site damage assessment and economic analysis has been completed. From this initial assessment the USACE team has determined that there are damages to the levee system that are eligible for PL 84-99 Rehabilitation Assistance. It was also noted by the assessment team that parts of the levee system couldn’t be assessed due to high water levels, and a follow-on damage assessment would be needed in the future.
