Sussex County emergency managers are asking property owners and residents affected by Tropical Storm Isaias to submit reports of damage to homes and businesses so officials can map the information and use it for a possible federal disaster application.
Damage reports can be submitted at www.sussexcountyde.gov/storm-damage-reporting. Users can select the link that matches the property affected. Within each link is an interactive map that allows users to pinpoint a structure’s location, and a survey to provide contact information and details about the type of damage suffered, whether the structure is habitable/operational, and if the home/business has insurance. Survey participants also can upload images of damage. Damage must be a result of the tropical storm that passed through the region on Aug. 4.
Information collected by Sussex County EOC will be used for assessment reports that are shared with the Delaware Emergency Management Agency.
