Governor Tina Kotek issued an update on the ongoing state response to the flooding and landslides in Tillamook County following torrential rains last week

Bend, OR – According to the state officials, our state may be eligible for several federal programs to support Tillamook County’s recovery from recent flooding.

The current damage assessment effort will provide the information needed, including determining program eligibility, for an emergency declaration that will expedite the receipt of federal dollars.

The assessment is anticipated to be completed in the next two to three weeks.

Tillamook County and the Oregon Department of Transportation are assessing the damage to the road network.

Governor Kotek released the following statement:

“As last week’s flooding began, I reached out directly to elected leadership in Tillamook County to offer any support the State can provide.

Oregon’s State Resilience Officer is working closely with the Oregon Department of Emergency Management and the County to ensure they have the support they need as we proceed with an assessment of damages in order to seek federal resources.

My office will continue to advocate for residents to receive the resources they need, including support in bringing in federal recovery resources.”
