Public Information Statement

Statement as of 6:00 AM EDT on March 23, 2017

Expires 10:00 AM EDT on March 23, 2017


The recovery process after a natural disaster can be long and
difficult. Many things need to be done by everyone. Here is a list
of tasks to be accomplished.

You continue assessing your needs. Contact extended family. Contact
your insurance company. Arrange financial assistance with public
officials if necessary. Report your damage to the National Weather
Service.

The National Weather Service continues damage assessment to note the
amount of damage and cause of the damage and posts this information
on their website. The damage report also becomes the official record
in the National Weather Service storm data publication used by
insurance companies to validate claims.

The media continues broadcasts of recovery efforts providing
listings of resources to turn to for help. News crews on the streets
report live from damage recovery areas.

Emergency responders continue to aid families in any recovery
efforts as well as clean-up operations. Debris removal from roads
and restoring communications are important functions carried out.
Restoration of communications and power are accomplished as quickly
as possible.

Homeland security personnel continue managing available manpower
and material resources for recovery. Homeland security also begins
federal assistance programs if needed.

The American Red Cross maintains volunteer operations with open
shelters and provide life sustaining supplies.

On Friday, we will cover what it means to be a weather-ready nation.
