Suffered Ida Storm Damage? Need Help? File a Report

NORRISTOWN PA – If your residential or commercial property was damaged by weather conditions attributable to Tropical Storm Ida, and you’re hoping for disaster assistance beyond your home or business insurance coverage, the first thing any government official will say right now is, “There are no guarantees.”

But in case money is set aside to help individuals and families with future recovery efforts, Montgomery County representatives are “strongly” encouraging those affected by Ida to report it as soon as possible at this webpage: It’s the online submission form where, as of Saturday, the county had received more than 1,300 damage reports (see map at top).

More are anticipated daily, in part because the regional office of the Federal Emergency Management Agency is prepared Tuesday (Sept. 7, 2021) to help county and local emergency officials begin assessing damage, as requested by Gov. Tom Wolf.

In addition to completing the online form, the county also asks property owners to finish the second part of a two-step process. It urges you to also contact the township or borough where the damaged residence or business is located, and provide them with similar information. Government entities apparently are asking counties and municipalities to make separate reports.

The county has provided a list of contacts for municipalities within The Posts’ coverage area where the second reports can be sent. Find it below:
