Emergency Management encourages Texans with property damage from recent storms to report it for possible disaster assistance

The Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM) continues to urge Texans to report property damage by submitting an online damage assessment survey. In Tyler County, this would be for any damage for a resident or business that has occurred in Rockland, Fox Landing, Mount Neches, Barlow Lakes or Sheffield's Ferry during the January 21st -31st Flooding event.

  Texans can report weather damage to homes and businesses using the Individual State of Texas Assessment Tool (iSTAT) damage survey. The iSTAT damage survey can be filled out in English and Spanish online by visiting and clicking on “January 21st - Ongoing Flooding Event.” The details provided to

TDEM in the iSTAT damage survey help emergency management officials gain an understanding of damages that have occurred and identify any immediate resource needs. Survey information also aids officials in determining whether the state meets federal requirements for various forms of disaster assistance.

Reporting damage through the iSTAT tool is a voluntary activity and is not a substitute for reporting damage to your insurance agency. It does NOT guarantee disaster relief assistance. English and Spanish tutorial videos explaining how to fill out iSTAT surveys are available at .
