Fairfax Wants Info on Flood Damage

Monday’s heavy rain caused property damage for many residents, and Fairfax County is asking homeowners to submit damage reports to the county’s Disaster Damage Database.

This database is completely voluntary, but the damage reports may impact what kind of federal disaster assistance — if any — can be made available to county residents who suffered losses. Initial damage assessment reports are due by Friday, July 12. Should residents need more time to complete their report, they should submit no later than Wednesday, July 24.

You can submit your damage form online at www.fairfaxcounty.gov/disasterreport/dr_submit.aspx.
