State Seeks Weather Impact Reports From Residents

The Oklahoma Department Emergency Management and Homeland Security has asked residents impacted by the recent winter storm to report property damages online at damage.ok.gov.

“We are requesting all Oklahoma residents who suffered winter storm damages to please report online at damage.ok.gov,” ODEMHS Director Mark Gower said.

“Reporting damage as soon as possible will greatly assist our ability to request additional federal assistance for the state as we recover from this historic storm.”

Through the online damage assessment survey, residents and business owners can report winter storm-specific impacts including:

*Flooding from broken pipes

*Power surges that caused damage to furnaces, electrical systems or major appliances

*Number of days without water, gas or electricity

*Number of days displaced by the winter storm

*Injuries suffered as a result of the winter storm

Reporting damage helps ODEMHS document the overall impact of the winter storm and helps support the case for further assistance to help homeowners, renters and business owners recover.

Oklahomans can report damage to homes, businesses or agriculture through the online survey at damage.ok.gov.
