More Flood Help on the Way 

Residents of Penobscot county can now register for federal disaster assistance for damages related to late April’s flooding.

President Bush’s declaration frees up federal grants and low interest loans to individuals and businesses.

The funds can be used for temporary housing, repairs and disaster related expenses not covered by insurance or other assistance programs.

Those wishing to register for assistance can do so online at or by calling 1(800)621-FEMA.
