There will be joint city, state and federal teams to visit neighborhoods throughout the weekend to conduct more detailed damage assessments. This is a critical step if federal assistance is to be considered for our region.
It is important to know there is no set threshold of damage for federal assistance, and thus it is not guaranteed. Nonetheless, all efforts are underway to capture and communicate the costs and impacts of the storm to state and federal officials.
Lastly, if you are aware of any unmet needs, please contact our dedicated hotline at 757-793-1837. At the same time, volunteers are needed! So if you are willing to assist individuals who need a helping hand cleaning up from the storm, please call 757-284-9183. Our great friends and partners at Operation Blessing are coordinating these efforts.
As always, please continue to visit Norfolk.gov or call the Norfolk Call Center at 757-664-6510 for storm-related information.
