Damage Assessment Begins This Week

County officials are assessing the damage to both residential and commercial structures to determine the impact of recent flooding in our area. This evaluation plays a critical role in acquiring state and federal financial assistance to assist the region’s disaster recovery efforts.

To ensure planning efforts are based on comprehensive data regarding storm and flood impacts, Horry County officials are requesting that citizens report their property damage information from the current flood event.

The Property Damage Self-Reporting Tool, located at https://www.horrycounty.org/, allows owners and renters to inform the County of the location, owner, extent of damage, and status of the affected property. The data and photos reported through this website will help the county to assess the comprehensive impact of recent flooding, and to determine the best long-term recovery strategies for affected communities.

In addition, community members should be aware that additional County crews including damage assessment teams will be in affected areas this week.
