County wants Big Island residents to fill out survey about damage from storm system

Hawaiʻi County has released a Damage Assessment Survey for residents affected by the Kona Low weather system, which brought strong winds and heavy rains to the island through Dec. 20, 2022.

The survey helps to ensure that the county can send a damage assessor to assess the damage caused by the recent storm. Data collected from the survey will allow county officials to determine if our jurisdiction qualifies for any state or federal assistance, and to assist with hazard mitigation planning.

Residents should be mindful that completing the Damage Assessment Survey is not an application for assistance. Affected parties still need to file claims with their insurance companies.

For more information about the survey, residents should contact Civil Defense at 808-935-0031 or 808-935-0032.

The survey can be accessed at https://arcg.is/1b8CS1 or by the link on the County of Hawai website.

For additional information about road closures, hazards, services, and other Hawaiʻi County impacts, residents can download the Kāhea App, available on both Apple and Andriod devices. Further, residents can visit the Hawaiʻi County Civil Defense Hazard Map at https://tinyurl.com/ykyvw3bb.
