NWS crews investigating storm damage across north Georgia

Here's how you can report damage to your property.

ATLANTA — The National Weather Service has reported a significant number of storm damage reports from late Sunday night and early Monday morning.

They have survey crews going to many of these locations on Monday to determine the level of damage and whether or not straight-line winds or a tornado was responsible for the damage.

If a tornado was responsible, then they will be able to ascertain the strength of the tornado in each case.

This is, by all means, not an exhaustive list of all of the damage across north Georgia from the storms that struck the region overnight.

This list includes the deadly incident in Cartersville that killed one person and left two others hurt when a tree fell on a home.

HOW DO YOU REPORT STORM DAMAGE TO YOUR PROPERTY?


If you have damage to your property, officials from the Georgia Emergency Management and Homeland Security Agency (GEMA) ask that you take photographs of the damage and submit them, along with the following form to GEMA in order to have it verified.

Residential, commercial and public buildings are all eligible to be assessed by GEMA under the guidelines for this assessment.

You are also asked to visit GEMA's Public Assistance page for more information regarding public assistance, along with the FEMA Individual Assistance Web Page for information regarding individual assistance following a natural or man-made disaster.

Of course, following this, you would need to contact your own insurance company to have their assessor visit your property for appropriate documentation under your appropriate policy.
