URGENT: Report Damages From Severe Storms/Flooding

The Office of Emergency Management urges residents who suffered property damage because of flooding are strongly urged to report damages, along with images and video, to the Texas Division of Emergency Management’s (TDEM) website.

“This is a very urgent matter,” said Steve Howie, Kaufman County Emergency Management Coordinator. “If residents do not report damages, there will be no way for them or anyone else to receive any type of emergency funding relief. We must have at least 25 reports of uninsured or underinsured property damage in the County, or there won’t even be a chance of receiving relief funding.”
