City of Orange law enforcement will be completing residential checks in Cove as well as east of the railroad tracks and south of Interstate 10.

Registering online at www.DisasterAssistance.gov, is the quickest way to register for FEMA assistance. In addition to the disaster website, a claim can be filed by downloading the FEMA app at www.fema.com/mobile-app. If you are unable to access the internet, you can also file a claim by calling 1-800-621-3362. However, please know that a phone claim may take longer as FEMA’s phone lines are overwhelmed.
When you register for disaster assistance either online or by phone, you will need the following to complete your application:
• Social Security number
• Address of the location where the damage occurred (pre-disaster address)
• Current mailing address
• Current telephone number
• Insurance information
• Total household annual income
• Routing and account number for your checking or savings account (this allows FEMA to directly transfer disaster assistance funds into your bank account).
• A description of your disaster-caused damage and losses
All residents affected by Harvey are encouraged to file a claim with FEMA. This does not guarantee assistance, but may help residents pursue any claim and will serve to ensure the county qualifies for any FEMA assistance that may be available in the future.
