Disaster proclamation makes assistance available in four local counties following weekend storm

Residents of Ford, Iroquois, Livingston and Woodford counties are among those Illinoisans covered by the state’s disaster proclamation due to last weekend’s severe storms. Those in the affected counties who need assistance from state agencies may visit the virtual Multi-Agency Resource Center (MARC) for helpful information and resources.

Some local residents might remember an in-person MARC which opened for a few weeks following the flooding in Gibson City earlier this year. If a similar in-person center opens in our district, that announcement would come in the near future. In the meantime, these services are currently available online for anyone in immediate need.
