Town of Sunnyvale - Aug. 26, 2022
Report flood damage
Governor Greg Abbott signed a disaster declaration on Tuesday, Aug. 23 for 23 counties that were impacted by flooding during the heavy rainfall event that parts of Texas experienced earlier this week. Texans who sustained damage caused by flooding are encouraged to report damage through the Texas Division of Emergency Management's Individual State of Texas Assessment Tool (iSTAT).
This survey will help the state identify damages across Texas and help emergency management officials gain an understanding of damages that occurred during the recent severe weather. The data obtained through the survey is also needed to provide information to the Federal Emergency Management Agency to determine the state's eligibility and highlight the need for federal disaster assistance for individuals.
The survey is voluntary, does not a substitute for reporting damage to an insurance agency, and does not guarantee disaster relief assistance.

Don't forget to drain any standing water you may have on your property from the recent heavy rain and flooding! Standing water is the perfect breeding ground for mosquitos.
