State emergency officials say that South Dakotans who registered with FEMA in 2011 for damage caused by Missouri River flooding may be eligible for additional assistance if further damage has been discovered.
Residents of Hughes, Stanley, Charles Mix, Yankton and Union counties were eligible to register last year for possible damage claims because of flooding.
Those who registered with the Federal Emergency Management Agency can seek additional individual assistance if additional flood-related damage has been found in the past year.
South Dakota Office of Emergency Management Director Kristi Turman says because the original deadline to register was Oct. 24, 2011, many residents barely had time to return to their properties let alone identify all flood-related damages.
The deadline for filing claims for new damage is Feb. 23.
