Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan and Gov. Gretchen Whitmer will meet with President Joe Biden in Traverse City on Saturday to seek federal funds to address widespread flooding that damaged homes and businesses last week.
Both will be advocating for Metro-Detroit and all surrounding areas.
According to Duggan, FEMA must visit the impacted areas before President Biden can approve for financial help. He says FEMA will be here next Thursday, July 8.
“This is record speed. Certainly much faster than what it was in 2014,” Duggan said.
Residents should photograph personal damage to back up a claim.
