HONOLULU – The City and County of Honolulu’s Department of Emergency Management has released two online forms for Oahu residents to self-report damage to their homes or businesses from the recent severe weather and flooding. The purpose of these forms are to collect information that will help county, State and Federal officials better understand the damage that occurred and impacts on our community. The City will also use the gathered information to help determine the needs in our community, additional response measures, as well as the type and extent of assistance that may be offered.
“As we continue our response to the weather impacts and the aftermath, we ask everyone to continue to pay attention to their surroundings and stay safe. As we move forward we need to make sure that we are getting the full picture of extent of damages in our community,” said Hiro Toiya, director Honolulu Department of Emergency Management. “We’re asking those who sustained damages to their homes or businesses from the recent Kona Low system to report damages through our online portals.”
