Gov. Whitmer Announces Michigan Receives Disaster Declaration from President Biden After August Tornadoes and Storms 

LANSING, Mich. – Today, Governor Gretchen Whitmer announced that President Joe Biden has approved Michigan’s request for a disaster declaration in nine counties across the state as a result of heavy storms in August 2023, unlocking assistance for affected Michiganders. 

“Michiganders have been working hard to recover from the tornadoes and storms that caused so much damage across the state this summer,” said Governor Whitmer. “With today’s federal disaster declaration by President Biden, we will get the resources we need to support impacted families, businesses, and communities. Michiganders are tough. We will get through this the way we always have—together." 

The declaration opens the path to Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Individual Assistance (IA) for residents of Eaton, Ingham, Ionia, Kent, Livingston, Macomb, Monroe, Oakland and Wayne counties. Federal funding is also available on a cost-sharing basis for hazard mitigation measures statewide. 

This FEMA assistance can include grants for temporary housing and home repairs, low-cost loans to cover uninsured property losses, and other programs to help individuals and business owners recover from the effects of the disaster. 

 “This federal assistance will supplement the ongoing state and local recovery efforts and will directly help home and business owners affected by these storms,” said Col. James F. Grady II, state director of Emergency Management and Homeland Security and director of the MSP. “We encourage all affected residents to apply.” 

On August 24, areas in lower Michigan experienced several storm fronts that brought heavy rain, strong winds, and seven tornadoes. Governor Gretchen Whitmer made the request for a Major Disaster Declaration as communities across the state experienced road and bridge closures, downed trees and power lines, damage to building structures, embankments, and road surfaces, overwhelmed stormwater and sewer systems, and deposits of silt and debris. Hundreds of homeowners also reported residential flooding.  

Residents and business owners who sustained losses in the designated areas can begin applying for assistance at, by calling 800-621-FEMA (3362), or by using the FEMA AppAnyone using a relay service, such as video relay service (VRS), captioned telephone service or others, can give FEMA the number for that service.

Blue Heron Replacement

Construction for the replacement of Blue Heron will begin 04/10/2023. Roughly 1,500 linear feet will be replaced - this is an increase over the proposed amount. As the same for the last few years, the concrete contractor, Dominic Gaglio, will be sectioning the street as work progresses. Parking and access to your homes will be accommodated as much as possible. This is projected to be completed by the end of June 2023. Continuing replacement will be acomplished as funding allows. We are currently working on our Asset Management Plan with our engineers. Money from the state comes through Public Act 51 for our roads. Our road millage also provides funding for the streets of all of our residents.
