Flooding Recovery Information

DisasterAssistance.gov - Access to disaster help and resources Heavy rains over the memorial day weekend and subsequent week brought flood damage to much of the State of Texas, damaging homes and property in Fort Bend County. Enough rain fell on Texas in the month of May to cover the entire State in 8 inches of water. This heavy rainfall stressed the rivers, creeks, and even streets in our community, especially the Brazos River. Many residents had damage to their homes from the storms or from the flooding the storms caused. The Fort Bend County Office of Emergency Management is working diligently to ensure that all residents of Fort Bend County are safe and have access to the help they need to make repairs to their homes and property. At this time the Fort Bend County Emergency Operations Center is partially activated.

FEMA LogoMany residents in Fort Bend County reported damage to their homes and property using our damage report form. That information was used to compile damage assessment reports that were sent to the state and ultimately FEMA, thus unlocking Individual Assistance for Fort Bend County residents.

Now that individual assistance is available for Fort Bend County, all residents with damage to their homes should apply for assistance from FEMA by visiting DisasterAssistance.gov.
