STORM DAMAGE? King County wants to hear from you

People in unincorporated King County who suffered damage from the recent snow and rain are asked to report it ASAP. Here’s the announcement:
King County Office of Emergency Management (KCOEM) is collecting damage reports from residents and businesses from the winter cold, snow, and subsequent flooding events that have occurred since December 24, 2021. This will assist the state in its request for a federal disaster declaration.

KCOEM has created a new section on its disaster recovery webpage at to share information about the Individual Assistance Initial Damage Assessment and provide links to damage reporting forms for residents and businesses.

Important things to keep in mind:

– Residents and business owners need to document all damages.
– Individuals should report damages to their insurance provider and to the county.
– There is no FEMA or other assistance available at this time for the current flooding incident.
– Insurance information is important: Does the individual have flood insurance? Homeowner? Renters?
– Do they have a furnished basement and what was the flood height?

Damage information will be gathered through Thursday, Jan. 20 from residents and businesses in unincorporated King County so it can be compiled and submitted to the Washington State Emergency Management Division.
