Verbatim: Reporting your storm damage online

The Indiana Department of Homeland Security issued this news release today:

Hoosiers who sustained damage caused by severe weather on November 17 can report damage online at: https://myoracle.in.gov/hs/damage/ia-public.do?method=active&incidentId=IA20131118083856.

A link to the form is also available on the Indiana Department of Homeland Security (IDHS) website at in.gov/dhs. In the middle of the page under "Featured Topics," click on "Report Damage from Severe Weather - November 17"

Individuals will be asked to provide their name, address, phone number and type of damage the property sustained. Losses can include structural damage to homes and loss of personal property.

FOR QUESTIONS

For questions, contact your county emergency management agency. Local agency's contact information is available at http://www.in.gov/dhs/2797.htm.

IF YOU DO NOT HAVE INTERNET ACCESS

Individuals without Internet access are encouraged to contact a friend, family member or neighbor for assistance. Web access is also available at many libraries, religious institutions, community centers or other public facilities. If none of those options are available, individuals may also contact their county emergency management agency to report damage.

THIS REPORT IS NOT AN APPLICATION FOR ANY ASSISTANCE PROGRAM

This is NOT an application for a grant with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Information will be used to help local emergency management agencies and the Indiana Department of Homeland Security preliminarily assess damage to determine if federal assistance can be pursued.
