Many Austin residents are seeking help after a July 23 torrential rainstorm flooded many parts of the city.
The Austin City Council is encouraging victims of the flood to compile a detailed list with photos of damage they incurred, and will make flood assessment forms available at the Aldermen’s offices. The forms must be turned in by Friday August 6.
The commissioner said the city will use the information to try and secure federal reimbursement money from the Federal Emergency Management Agency to aid victims.
Members of the South Austin Coalition Community Council have been out in the community since the weekend assisting with clean-up and water extraction.
If you or someone you know is in need of water extraction, contact the Austin water extraction of Wow Total Cleaning at 512-291-0048 to get help.
