Racine County opens hotline to report flood damage

Racine County is getting ready for possible flooding. They setup a hotline today for residents to report damage caused by the storm:
Because of the storms and heavy rains that fell on July 22nd and the potential of continued rain into July 24th, some Racine County residents may experience property damage. 
If such damage occurs, and to help assess its extent, Racine County Emergency Management has established a voicemail and email hotline.
This hotline is only for reporting the type and estimated cost of damage.
Persons who need immediate response assistance should contact their local governments or first responder agencies.
Racine County residents who experience flooding or other types of damage as a result of the recent rain events are encouraged to call 262.636.3308. Callers will be asked to leave their name; address; phone number; city, town or village; and a brief description of the type of damage, along with the estimated dollar amount.
Residents can also email RCEmergencyManagement@goracine.org and provide the same information.

The data will assist Racine County in responding to possible requests for information from the State of Wisconsin.
