The Massachusetts Coastal Coalition (MCC) has partnered with local resources, State Agencies, and other non-profits to bring information about many needed post-disaster resources to our flood damaged area.  This outreach will help stakeholders who sustained damage during our historic winter nor’easters, or others who want more information on flood insurance and what to do after a flooding disaster.

 

SALEM OUTREACH: MONDAY MAY 14th FROM 6:00pm to 8:00pm

98 Washington St, 1st Floor Large Public Hearing Room, Salem, MA 01970

  • Update from the community on post-storm actions
