County inspectors head to Midwest flood areas

The Baltimore Sun

Howard County is sending four building inspectors to the Midwest to help evaluate structures damaged by flooding in Louisa County, Iowa.

State officials in Iowa had appealed for help to the Maryland Emergency Management Agency through a state compact. Sean Kelly, chief of the Inspections and Enforcement Division of the county's Department of Licensing and Permits, will lead the team, which consists of Ed Ackerman, Kenneth Brown and Dave Baer, according to a news release this week from County Executive Ken Ulman.

The 16-day mission is being paid for with state emergency funds, the release said.
