Manhattan, Kansas, Labor Day Flood Caused $17.2M in Damage


Manhattan City Manager Ron Fehr says a flood over the Labor Day holiday weekend caused $17.2 million in structural damages in the city.

Fehr told the Manhattan City Commission on Sept. 18 that four commercial and eight residential properties suffered substantial damage — meaning more than 50 percent damage from the storm or 25 percent or more damage in successive storms.
It rained almost 9 inches and caused Wildcat Creek to overflow their banks and force more than 300 people to evacuate their homes.

Manhattan Mercury reported that the US Small Business Administration opened a disaster loan aid center on Tuesday. It will remain open until 27 September. Businesses, non-profit organizations, landlords and tenants can apply for money to repair or replace their property.
