County Officials and the Office of Emergency Management understand the urgency to get back to your homes, start the cleanup process and get your lives back to normal. As you know a large area of the county was effected by this storm. We are in the process of working on a systematic plan to help you in your cleanup process.
So far we have received roughly 150 reports of damaged homes and/or businesses. If you have damage and have not yet reported it, please do so. The damage assessment questionnaire is posted to our website www.mctxoem.com or you may call the Office of Emergency Management Hotline at 936-523-3916 or the United Way hotline at 281-292-4155 ext.245 to report damages to a residence or business.
In the next few days, you may see Red Cross going through flooded areas and distributing cleanup kits. They will also be setting up Multi-Agency Recovery Centers where non-profit agencies will gather for residents to visit with. At the MARC they will receive information about and get linked up with the group that will best suit their needs.
McCares (Montgomery County Community Assistance Recovery Efforts and Services) has set up donation and distribution hubs.

Please be aware that the declaration process takes time. Montgomery County cannot move forward until FEMA does their Preliminary Damage Assessment and decides whether to declare a disaster for our area. Once they do this we can move forward into the cleanup and recovery phase of this flood event.
