Lincoln County Emergency Management Agency Director Casey Stevens believes there is more damage from a recent windstorm in Lincoln County than has been reported, and encourages residents to identify those damages and report them so they can be eligible for assistance.
“Thanks to the work of many officials throughout the county, we have a pretty good handle on damage and losses to public property,” Stevens said. “We believe there is more damage to homes and businesses than has been reported so far. Residents and business owners may not know the criteria to report. For example, a business that was closed for 72 hours due to the storm and had losses should report.”
Stevens encourages residents to report damages with an easy-to-use form, which they can submit by email or print to submit by fax or mail.
“This form provides the initial information to us so we can forward the numbers along,” Stevens said. “If the damage and losses are not reported, the damages will not be known, therefore there may not be an individual assistance declaration.”
