On October 6th and October 7th, 2021, a major flash flood event occurred across the state of Alabama. Parts of Hoover experienced more than ten inches of rain in a matter of a few hours. This resulted in flash flooding across many parts of the city.
The City of Hoover, in partnership with the Jefferson County Emergency Management Agency, has established damage assessment portals, which are tools for gathering data on the damages caused by the aforementioned flooding event. These assessment portals are open to all homeowners and businesses within the City of Hoover that sustained damages.
The data collected through the damage assessment portals help determine if the City of Hoover, Jefferson County and Shelby County meet the FEMA eligibility threshold to apply for federal assistance. The portals also provide information on the impacts of the storm.
Residents and businesses owners can submit a damage reporting form through October 18th, 2021. There are two forms that can be used:
Residents and business owners are reminded that completing the form is not a substitute for submitting information through insurance. Also, a submission does not in any way guarantee federal, state or local reimbursement or financial assistance.
