Damage assessment reporting
Please use this form to report damage to your property, roads, utilities or any other storm-related information. This damage report will be sent to Iowa Homeland Security and Emergency Management and made available to your local emergency manager to better understand the event that caused the damage.

This provides situational awareness for local officials and assists in reporting the overall damage to our community. Please contact your insurance provider to file a claim or ask what assistance they can provide according to your policy.
Disaster Assistance for hardships
The Disaster Case Management Program addresses serious needs related to disaster-related hardship, injury, or adverse conditions. Disaster case managers work with clients to create a disaster recovery plan and provide guidance, advice, and referral to obtain a service or resource. There are no income eligibility requirements for this program; it closes 180 days from the date of the governor’s proclamation.

Wapello Co. Secondary Road closures
There are a lot of road projects going on in Wapello County right now. For project specifics, go to https://www.iceasb.org/roads/county/wapello
Did you know the Secondary Roads Department maintains 699 miles of roads and 125 bridges in Wapello County? County roads serve rural Iowa transport needs in two capacities: Local Access roads assure a public road connection for every parcel of land; Farm to market roads also provide access and, in addition, serve as conduits that collect the flow of people and commodities, channeling them to and from towns and terminals. Even though county roads are considered “low volume” the daily travel they carry is equivalent to a single vehicle making 60 round trips to the moon.
