The preliminary storm damage assessment for Riley County is estimated at $9.74 million. A team from the Riley County Appraiser’s Office and Manhattan Fire Department’s Risk Reduction Division performed assessments of 41 residential and business properties which sustained storm damage. A total of 20 properties received major damage and 3 homes were declared completely destroyed. The total value of properties surveyed is estimated at $26.8 million.

Riley County issued a disaster declaration effective June 11, 2022 for this severe weather event.

“We’ve seen a lot of wind damage from this storm and a large amount of debris,” said Russel Stukey, Riley County Emergency Management Director. “As you’re cleaning up your property, be aware that nails and other sharp objects are likely present with roof debris and dangling overhead branches could pose a serious danger. Wear protective gear such as gloves, hard-soled shoes, hardhat or helmet, and eye protection. If you don’t feel comfortable performing the work yourself, hire a professional.”

Public Works crews will continue to remove storm debris from public roadways. In some areas, heavy equipment was used to push storm debris to the sides of the roads to allow through traffic. County and City crews will work this week to remove any remaining debris on public roads and public property.

The Riley County Transfer station will accept tree limbs and other plant-based debris from residents at no charge. Regular hours are Monday through Friday from 7AM to 5PM. They will not accept structural debris such as roofing material, building siding, or bricks. Please contact your trash hauler for more information about how to safely dispose of structural debris.
