We use the information you report to assess the impact and respond to the affected areas. The application has four categories for damage:
- No Damage/Minor Damage - Habitable
The structure suffered only superficial or no damage and is fully habitable during any required repairs.
- Major Damage - Habitable
The structure is damaged but may be lived in during the repair process.
- Major Damage - Uninhabitable
The structure is badly damaged and the residents must find somewhere else to reside during the repairs.
The structure has been destroyed and cannot be repaired; must be rebuilt. The residents must find somewhere else to reside.
Residents can also input data regarding flooding inside or outside the structure. This information is important as it is an indicator of the scope of damage to surrounding infrastructure such as roads. Such information enables emergency responders to appropriately plan response efforts within the County.
