All Whatcom County Residents Requested to Report ANY Flood-Related Damages As Essential First Step i

 All Whatcom County residents, regardless of where they live, are requested to use an online form to report ANY flood damage received since the region’s flooding episodes began on Nov. 14. Please complete the form as soon as possible, and no later than Dec. 6. 

 

Completing this form will help support Whatcom County’s request for aid from Washington State and the Federal Government. Some state aid will begin to arrive for qualifying individuals soon. The damage assessment form is the first step in the process to request and hopefully receive, Federal aid. At this point, there is no guarantee that Whatcom County will receive any Federal aid.  

 

All households who sustained damage should complete the form regardless of whether they rent or own their home, what city they live in, or whether or not they live in an unincorporated area. The only requirement is that the damage occurred in Whatcom County as a result of November storm flooding. 

 

Those who need help filling out this form should call the Damage Assessment Line at 360-788-5311 and leave a message. Someone will call you back to fill it out. Due to the backlog of messages that are being returned from the damage phone number, residents are asked to use the online form if at all possible. If the damage occurred outside of Whatcom County, please contact that county to make a report.
