For anyone with significant property damage caused by the winter storm who is not in one of the 16 approved counties, please report damage online today at damage.ok.gov. Examples of significant damage include flooding and water damage inside the home from broken pipes, roof damage or roof collapse, major damage to HVAC systems and electrical systems, sewage backups, long term water outages, or other issues. Users can also upload photos of their damage through the website.
“Reporting your damages helps the state continue to build a case for federal assistance for residents in additional counties who are suffering from damage left from the winter storm,” said ODEMHS Director Mark Gower. “We are working closely with FEMA throughout this process and appreciate their partnership and support.”
Gov. Stitt and ODEMHS hope to add more counties to the declaration as additional damages are identified and verified by FEMA.
Counties currently eligible for assistance are Canadian, Carter, Cherokee, Comanche, Cotton, Hughes, Jefferson, Le Flore, McIntosh, Oklahoma, Okmulgee, Osage, Pittsburg, Stephens, Tulsa, and Wagoner.
