Governor Greg Abbott and the Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM) are encouraging Texans to complete the Self Reporting Damage Survey to help the state identify damages across Texas and help emergency management officials gain an understanding of damages that occurred during the recent winter weather. This data is also needed to provide information to FEMA and highlight the need for federal disaster assistance for individuals.
A Disaster Distress Helpline has also been activated for people coping with stress from the winter storm. This toll-free, multilingual and confidential crisis support line is available 24/7.
