EMA: Deadline to Report Flood Damage Fast Approaching

By: David Shepherd / Director of News & Public Information

DUBOIS COUNTY–  Several agencies, including the Dubois County Emergency Management Agency, Purdue Extension Office and Indiana Department of Homeland Security are urging area flood victims, who haven’t already done so, to report their damage on-line.

The deadline is fast approaching for those damage reports.

The 211 call center, previously set up for damage reports, is no longer logging those reports.  Instead, residents who experienced flood damage during the recent historic flooding should report the damage on-line by clicking HERE.

View the full press release from the Emergency Management Agency below.

FINAL CHANCE TO REPORT

 The deadline to report water damages to your homes from the recent flooding to the Indiana Department of Homeland Security is fast approaching.  If you have already reported your water damage via 2-1-1 or other means we thank you!!!!  However, if you have not reported please do so by going to the following link:

https://oas.dhs.in.gov/hs/damage/ia-public.do?method=active&incidentId=IA20170509102318

We are specifically looking for the following criteria:

  • 18” of water or more on the first floor of home
  • 18” of water or more in a basement with essential living quarters such as a bedroom, kitchen or             living room

It is extremely important to report your damage as we are trying to show the State of Indiana the magnitude of the damages received in Dubois County.  The number of reports that have been reported thus far with the above criteria are not adequate to meet the required threshold to apply for assistance from the State or Federal Government.
