Homeland Security continues to accept applications

The Indiana Department of Homeland Security is continuing to accept online reports from Hoosier individuals and businesses who sustained damage caused by severe weather on Nov. 17.

Damage can be reported at: https://myoracle.in.gov/hs/damage/ia-public.do?method=active&incidentId=IA20131118083856. A link to the form is also available on the IDHS website at in.gov/dhs. In the middle of the page under “Featured Topics,” click on “Report Damage from Severe Weather - November 17”.

“We want to make sure those that were without power have an opportunity to report their damage. Also, there is particular interest in insurance coverage,” said John Erickson, Senior Public Information Officer with IDHS.

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. Any Hoosier who has already reported damage online need not do so again.

“Please report your damage as soon as possible,” Erickson said. “This first step by citizens helps the entire process move more quickly.”

FOR QUESTIONS

For questions, contact your county emergency management agency. Local agencies’ 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 is 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.
