Four days after parts of Manhattan flooded and displaced about 300 people, damaged properties had been inspected and a fund has been set up to help people in need.

In a news release Friday afternoon, the city of Manhattan said flooding damaged 93 properties with 106 buildings and a total of 381 dwelling units.

As of 5 p.m., more than 100 households had participated in a Multi Agency Resource Center hosted by the American Red Cross at St. Thomas Moore Church, 2900 Kimball Ave., where the city, the Knights of Columbus, Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas and the Department of Motor Vehicles provided assistance to people affected by the flood. Food was provided by Dillons grocery stores and Harvesters.

Vivienne Uccello, community engagement coordinator for the city of Manhattan, said all roads were open and passable except Poliska Lane. She said a portion of Poliska Lane washed out in the flood and will be repaired next week after the surface has dried.

Parts of Linear Trail also remained closed.

The Greater Manhattan Community Foundation has set up a fund to help people affected by flooding. People can make a donation at www.mcfks.org/flood or by texting 'FLOOD' to (785) 284-8783.

The city also provided tips for safe cleanup for people who are removing mud and flood-damaged items from their properties.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends the following:

• Keep children and pets out of the affected area until cleanup has been completed.

 • Wear personal protective equipment, including rubber boots, rubber gloves and goggles, during cleanup of affected area.

• While cleaning up areas with mold damage, wear a NIOSH-approved N-95 respirator or one that provides more protection.

• All food exposed to floodwater should be thrown out. All food requiring refrigeration should be thrown out if the power was out for more than four hours.

• Remove and discard items that can't be washed and disinfected, such as mattresses, carpeting, rugs, upholstered furniture, stuffed animals, baby toys, books and most paper products.

• Remove and discard drywall and insulation that has been contaminated with sewage or flood waters. This should include materials that are located a foot higher than the high-water line.

• Thoroughly clean all hard surfaces, such as flooring, concrete, molding, wood and metal furniture, countertops, appliances, sinks and other plumbing fixtures, with hot water and laundry or dish detergent.

• Help the drying process by using fans, air conditioning units and dehumidifiers.

• Be sure your tetanus shot is current. Hand washing with soap and clean water is important when cleaning areas that have been exposed to floodwater.

• Wash all clothes worn during the cleanup in hot water and detergent. These clothes should be washed separately from uncontaminated clothes and linens.

• Wash clothes contaminated with flood water in hot water and detergent. It is recommended that a laundromat be used for washing large quantities of clothes and linens.

• Seek immediate medical attention if you become injured or ill.
