One thing I’d like to mention… County Judge Robert Newsom was explaining to me that Hopkins County has
not yet been added to the Disaster Declaration from the snowstorm because we haven’t reported the damage to
the state’s system. Texans are urged to fill out the TDEM's State of Texas Assessment Tool (iSTAT) t o help
the state identify damages across Texas and help emergency management officials gain an understanding of
damages that occurred during the recent winter weather. FEMA has asked the state of Texas for additional
information regarding the amount of damage in the counties that have yet to be declared, and TDEM will
continue to present that information until all Texas counties that qualify for federal assistance receive the
assistance they need. If this applies to you, please do your part, and submit a quick survey.
