Hurricane Harvey’s historic rain has finally stopped falling over the County of Grimes. And though some rivers in our area are still rising, the county’s Emergency Management Coordinator says the Navasota has crested.
David Lilly say that as far as our streams and smaller rivers, Bedias Creek and like that are concerned, the water is going down for sure.
Lilly says that’s allowed road and bridge crews to begin repairing what they can while we start figuring out what Harvey’s damage has cost the county. And that’s where you come in.
Lilly tells Navasota News he needs everyone who has suffered damage to let him know about it; even minimal because the county needs to reach a certain damage threshold before FEMA can come in and help individuals with their homes. If Grimes reaches that threshold, property owners can file claims with FEMA. Depending upon the extent of the damage, FEMA can provide some assistance in most of those cases, including damage to your private road or driveway.
Lilly says you can contact him (including sending pictures of damage if you have them) at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or you can call his cell at 979-204-4592. And be patient if you have to leave a message. He will get back.
