Community Helps Manhattan Clean Up Flooding Damages

Posted: Updated:
MANHATTAN -

Businesses and homes across Montana continue to clean up their properties damaged by last week's flooding.

"We wouldn't be where we are without them," said Susie Green, L & F Market store manager.

L & F Market in downtown Manhattan is one of the many businesses that flooded last week.

"We had to rip up all the floors. We've lost thousands of dollars of product and we have to rewire the entire store," said Green.

Store manager, Susie Green said they've had around 50 people over the weekend help clean up the damage.

"I haven't been overwhelmed at all," said Green.

Todd Kitto is one of those 50 people who has helped out.

"For me, I give a hand where ever I can," said Kitto. 

On Monday, Kitto ripped out carpet and moved products out of the store.

"I guess many hands make for light work," said Kitto. "The more we can do, the quicker businesses can get back on their feet."

Mayor of Manhattan, Dave Rowell said most of the flood damage will not be covered by insurance.

"Now, we're fine tuning the clean-up and making decisions on how we're going to proceed," said Rowell.

Green hopes to have the store open next week.

A town meeting is scheduled on Monday night at the Manhattan Junior High school.

The purpose of the meeting is to find out more information from those affected by the flooding, what damages are insured and let people know what assistance is available to them.

The meeting will begin at 7 p.m.
