Resources for January 10th Storm

by | Jan 12, 2024 | News

The recent storms across Maine have left many Downeast coastal and island communities challenged by historic, widespread flooding and wind damage. Resources are available throughout the state for those impacted by the storm’s effects.
Governor Mills has declared a civil state emergency in eight counties in advance of a similar storm predicted for this weekend. Check MEMA for any emergency alerts and the Maine Prepares website for more information on emergency preparedness. The Maine Forestry Service also has information about dealing with any downed trees and limbs.
Individuals should reach out to their County Emergency Management Agency, which provide support and resources for preparedness, response, recovery, and mitigation. For up-to-date information both Hancock and Washington counties’ Emergency Management Agencies have Facebook pages with information and resources. 

Property owners are asked to thoroughly document any damage when reporting this information to the county agencies. The Maine Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) offers online forms for documenting loss. These help the state understand the extent of damage from the January 10th storm. MEMA also explains the importance of filling out these forms.
