Storm Damage Reporting Information

Maine Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) is collecting information on damages from the two recent storms by forms available to impacted individuals and businesses on MEMA’s website and below. Note that by reporting damage, people are NOT applying for assistance. The information will help the State of Maine estimate the full impact of the storms and unlock the maximum amount of potential Federal support available.

If the damage from these storms meets the financial statutory threshold exceeding the State’s ability to respond, Governor Mills will seek another Federal Disaster Declaration – in addition to the one she recently requested.

People who have experienced damages as a result of the storms are encouraged to report those damages by filling out one of the survey forms below.

  1. Individuals & Households Initial Damage Assessment: Online Survey or PDF form.
  2. Business and Agriculture Initial Damage Assessment: Online Survey – (There might be a PDF of this form available later today from MEMA and I will share it when it is available)

For people who do not have internet access or are not comfortable filling out the survey themselves, they may dial 2-1-1 and an operator will help them do that.

While MEMA has asked that impacted parties report the damage from the January 10th storm by January 18th, and from the January 13th storm by January 22nd they recognize that some who have been impacted by the storms have not been able to access the forms or fill them out so MEMA will accept those damage reports after deadline.

Here are a few other helpful links:

Visit Governor Mills’ online Maine Flood and Assistance Hub for resources and information.

Visit MEMA’s website for up-to-date information on storm preparedness.

The Department of Marine Resources has also published information including Working Waterfront Financial and Technical Assistance.
