Orange County Imelda Damage Survey

The objective of this survey is to aid the Office of Emergency Management and Orange County Disaster Rebuild as they assess and identify damages and needs within the community.

Accurately reporting your location of damaged residence will allow emergency management to prioritize recovery efforts in the most affected areas.

Reporting damage to Emergency Management is a voluntary activity and is not a substitute for reporting damage to your insurance agency nor does it guarantee disaster relief assistance.

Press Release #4

DEBRIS REMOVAL

As citizens begin to remove flood damaged debris from homes, city officials advise that debris due to flooding from Tropical Storm Imelda be sorted and placed curbside properly according to FEMA requirements.

Please place the debris to the side of the road in a manner that is NOT blocking the road in any way. The debris should be placed in the proper piles and also should be accessible for pick up with a grappling truck.

Any flood related materials that citizens may want removed from the area must be separated into four distinct categories. FEMA requirements for separation of debris and damaged material are as follows:

  • C&D Piles- construction and demolition materials
  • Vegetation – tree limbs, branches and cuttings
  • White Goods- refrigerators, stoves, washers, dryers, freezers, etc.
  • Hazardous Waste- paints, household chemicals, etc.
  • Electronics – Computers, radios, stereos, televisions, and other devices with a cord

Additional information will be posted when available to Facebook at Orange Texas Gov and online at www.orangetexas.net.
