Procedure for reporting damages from the January 9-10, 2024 Storm
Individuals, homeowners, small businesses and agriculture are welcome to submit their damages to the state, using the forms, etc. below:
Individuals & Households Initial Damage Assessment Survey:
- Individuals & Households Initial Damage Assessment Survey (online survey) (You can also use the QR code on the bottom of this page to get to it.)
- Individuals & Households Initial Damage Assessment Form 9-14-23 (pdf)
If you choose to complete the PDF instead of the online survey, you will need to attach the PDF to an email along with any photos you’d like to submit, to the town’s EMA Director at the Town Office. You can also provide a hard copy to the town (who would then forward it on to the appropriate agency) but that can be problematic if you also want to send photos.
Business and Agriculture Initial Damage Assessment Survey:
For business and agriculture damages, the only option is to fill out the online survey; there isn’t a PDF form.
If you struggle with the forms or survey and need someone to do it for you, contact 211 Maine (just dial 211 from anywhere in Maine) and they will go through the questions with you and submit it for you.
Keep in mind that submitting a survey or a PDF form is NOT an application for assistance. There is no guarantee any assistance will be available to you. The purpose of submitting your damages is to help the state determine whether there are enough damages to seek a disaster declaration.
Damages from the 1/9-10/2024 storm must be submitted by January 18 to be included in the totals for determining whether the state has enough damages to get a disaster declaration.
