FEMA approves request to begin damage assessments BISMARCK Gov. John Hoeven has announced that the Federal Emergency Management Agency has approved his request to begin Preliminary Damage Assessments (PDAs) to document losses and costs incurred as a result of last month's severe win- ter storm. Hoeven requested the assess- ments on Jan. 28, paving the way for a Presidential Disaster Declaration to ,help municipali- ties, tribes and rural electric coop- eratives (RECs) recover costs associated with the storm. "The initiation of the PDA process brings us one step closer to helping our communities and state recover from the losses that occurred as a result of January's winter storm," Hoeven said in a prepared statement. "We will con- tinue to work with FEMA, through .our Department of Emergency Services, to help our municipalities, tribes and rural electric cooperatives recover from this storm and receive reimburse- ment for losses and damages." The PDA process will begin on Feb. 8 and should take about a week to complete, according to the governor's office. The process will document the extent of rnpact to cities, counties, tribes and rural electric cooperatives incurred in this storm. The request was made as a result of a statewide winter storm that downed power lines and poles "We will contin- ue to work with FEMA, through our Department of Emergency Services, to help our municipalities, tribes and rural electric coopera- tives recover from this storm and receive reimburse- ment for losses and damages." Gov. John Hoeven primarily in the southwestern cor- ner of North Dakota, leaving about 6,200 households without power. Most have since, been restored with power. The North Dakota Department of Emergency Services requests that those without power remain vigilant about personal prepared- ness and safety, and recommends that generators are kept well away from homes and outside of struc- tures. Carbon monoxide fumes are deadly and can quickly over- whelm. Shown above is a downed power line in Slope County. While this pole is obvious to passers- by, buried wires or the stubs of poles may not be, and electrical cooperatives advise snowmo- bilers and ATV riders to be careful in these areas and right-of-ways.

MANDAN - The North Dakota Association of Rural Electric Cooperatives (NDAREC) urges snowmobilers and ATV operators to take extra caution when riding in power line right-of-ways, which may contain leftover debris from the January storm. Wally Kalmbach, director of safety for NDAREC, asks drivers to slow down and exercise cau- tion when traveling in ditches. "The recent storm toppled nearly 2,000 poles across the state, scattering conductors, cross-arms, poles and wire. Because the damage is wide- spread, some of the debris may not be collected until spring," he said. Snowmobilers and ATV opera- tors should be on the lookout for broken pole stubs and other debris that may be partially covered by snow, the RECs advise. NDAREC is the statewide trade association for 16 local electric cooperatives and five generation and transmission cooperatives operating in North Dakota. Four Reasons You Should Have An IRA 1.
