Lindsborg Officials Raise Flood Damage Estimate

KSAL StaffAugust 1, 2013

Officials in Lindsborg now estimate the damage from this week’s flash floods at $3.8 million.

Lindsborg officials issued the new estimate Wednesday following additional inspections of homes that were inundated Monday when up to 5 inches of rain fell in roughly an hour. The initial estimate was $2.5 million.

The city will hold a public information meeting at 7 p.m. Thursday at Smoky Valley Middle School. The meeting will focus on assistance, cleanup, sanitation and health issues.

KSNW-TV reports Lindsborg teenagers are pitching in to help.

Smoky Valley High School football coach Chris Hattabaugh brought 30 of his players plus 15 girls Wednesday to the home of Herbert Johnson, whose basement was filled with water. Johnson says he’s grateful for the assistance in cleaning up.
