Uninsured And Have Rain Damage? Pickens Co. Wants To Know

Posted: Updated:


If you want help cleaning up your flooded or damaged homes Pickens County Emergency Management says you have to report it.  

The county is collecting damage reports across the county to try and get you financial help from the Federal Government.

At the first of two meeting emergency management explained why every damage report needs to be filed.

Pickens County says it needs at least 25 homes with 40% of the flood damage not covered by insurance, to qualify for homeowners to qualify for low interest loans.

For FEMA assistance the county needs 100 homes, however emergency management did not think the county would qualify for FEMA Individual assistance.

7 On Your Side spoke Don Adams who owns a home on 18 Mile Creek. Adams says he has more than $5,000 dollars worth of damage and no flood insurance.

"The water came into our bottom floor all the flooring is buckled up now and it flooded my storage shed off"

If you can't attend Thursday nights final meeting you can also give damage reports directly to the Pickens County Emergency Management.

If Pickens County qualifies for the low interest loans the good news is neighboring counties including Greenville, Anderson and Oconee will also qualify.

For those who have been forced out of their homes by flooding you can call the Red Cross at 864-271-8222.


Pickens County Emergency Management asks that anyone who lives in Pickens County and was impacted by the recent rain events that resulted in uninsured or underinsured damage including policy deductibles, please report those losses to Pickens County Emergency Management at (864) 898-5946 or by email jlink@co.pickens.sc.us.

Please include your name, address, and telephone number along with an estimated dollar amount loss.

Meetings to provide information to those impacted will be held July 31 and August 1 at 5:00 PM  in the Community Meeting Room at Clemson City Hall.  Attendance of these meetings is not required in order to be included in the assessment process.
