Meeting set to discuss Missoula flood recovery efforts

Posted: Updated:

MISSOULA - A meeting for folks affected by this year's historic flooding in Missoula is set for Wednesday.

The Missoula County Office of Emergency Management is hosting the event from 4 p.m. until 8 p.m. at the Salvation Army building on South Russell Street.

The Multi-Agency Resource Center (MARC) will provide information on flood recovery, cleanup and what resources are available for affected residents.

Residents will have the opportunity to learn about how to get assistance, such as home muck out, senior citizen assistance, damage assessments, mold issues, restoration services, wells and septic systems.

Personal flood recovery plans can be created based upon specific disaster-caused needs, and care packages and clean-up kits will be available while supplies last.

Representatives from government, nonprofit, community groups, businesses and religiously-affiliated disaster relief organizations will be present at the MARC to assist flood victims. Participants include:

  • Missoula County
  • Red Cross of Montana
  • 2-1-1
  • Missoula Aging Services
  • Team Rubicon
  • The Salvation Army
  • Southern Baptists Disaster Relief
  • Missoula Flood Support
  • Care Package Support Group
  • United Way

Over 50 homes were evacuated in Missoula at the height of the flooding from the Clark Fork River in the Orchard Homes area. 


Information on MARC can be found here, including the following:

Multi-Agency Resource Center (MARC), can be an efficient way to deliver services to individuals and families affected by a disaster by bringing together multiple service providers in a single location and providing on-site assistance.

This resource is intended to support MARC planning and implementation in situations where communities have identified a MARC model as the appropriate mechanism for delivering services to its constituents affected by a disaster.
