SPRINGFIELD, Ohio (WDTN) – Relief is coming to Miami Valley residents displaced by recent flooding.

The Small Business Administration is reaching out to those impacted by granting low interest, long term loans to help in relief efforts.

Among the hardest hit, more than 80% of the Laynecrest Manor Apartments in Medway have been gutted due to the flooding more than two weeks ago.

More than 50 families who lived in Laynecrest Manor have been displaced since the flooding.

Public estimates for damages have totaled around $45,000.
