Important Flooding Information


While flooding is occurring, please call 847.810.3571.  

If you are experiencing a power outage, please call ComEd at 1-888-EDISON-1 (1-888-334-7661).

Lake County has received a State Disaster Proclamation due to the widespread flooding in our region. This can open the door for possible federal assistance.  Disaster recovery is a multi-step process starting with an initial damage assessment, which is now underway.

As part of this assessment, The City of Lake Forest is encouraging interested residents affected by the storms to complete the Lake County Flood Impact Report Form no later than Monday, July 24 at 1 p.m.

The link may be found here.

Resident completion of the Lake County Flood Impact Report Form is a critical step to determine federal assistance eligibility.  Please note that completing this form does not guarantee federal assistance.  

For any questions, please contact Jim Lockefeer at 847.810.3542. 

Natural disasters are often followed by illegitimate companies targeting victims of these calamities. Please be aware of these scams and never give out any personal information.
