DETROIT (WJBK) - Detroit senior citizens and those with physical challenges can complete an online form and be put on a list to receive storm cleanup assistance through the State of Michigan Resource Coordination Center.  

Individuals should go to www.bit.ly/floodcleanupsemi and complete the form.  

Once the information is received, a work order is completed and the cleanup will be scheduled utilizing volunteer resources.

Christian Aid Ministries' Rapid Response Services, an organization of Mennonite and Amish volunteers who clean residential homes following a disaster, have received a list of seniors from the Detroit Area Agency on Aging to begin cleanup efforts at their homes. Priority will also be given to areas in the city with the highest number of storm-related complaints.  

Seniors who normally don't utilize the Internet may call (313) 224-6000.

Detroit residents are also reminded to be aware of individuals claiming to be City flood inspectors. City inspections of flood-damaged areas have already been completed.  In addition, any authorized inspectors from the City of Detroit must have proper credentials.
