Help Available For El Pasoans Affected By Last Week’s Storms

Last week’s storms caused a lot of damage in El Paso, but especially in the County.  El Paso County Commissioners are busy this week trying to figure out how they can fix that damage.

They have a couple of ideas, but those fixes might take weeks.

Flooding Causes Problems For El Paso County Residents

First, Commissioners are working on getting money from the federal government, but to do that, they’ll have to prove 30 million dollars to private property, and 2.7 million dollars to public infrastructure.

El Paso County Judge Veronica Escobar said it will be hard to prove those numbers, but if the County can’t, they can apply for low interest rate federal assistance loans for homeowners and the County to make repairs.

Escobar said the process of trying to get help from the federal government could take several weeks, so County residents need to be patient and contact the Red Cross at 592-0208 if they need assistance.

For right now, County Commissioner Vince Perez said Commissioners are doing what they can to make sure streets get cleared of debris so the extent of the damage to those streets can be determined, and things can start getting back to normal.
