Tropical Storm Beryl Damage Report

Posted: Jul 9, 2024, 11:26 AM

The Bossier Office of Homeland Security & Emergency Preparedness asks residents to report any storm damage to their homes caused by Tropical Storm Beryl as soon as possible at www.Damage.LA.Gov.

Damage.LA.Gov is an initiative under Virtual Louisiana that allows citizens to self-report damages after disasters such as hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, wildfires, and winter weather.

If Tropical Storm Beryl has damaged your residence, click the link above to begin the reporting process. Here are some notes and tips for filling out and submitting your damage report. Take multiple photos from different angles, including close-ups, specific points of damage, and pictures of the entire structure. Remember, your safety is paramount. Never put yourself in danger to take photos or submit a report.

  • Make sure your photos aren't blurry or obscured.
  • Use the comments field to help describe the damage and supplement your photos.
  • Double-check your address and the location pin on the in-survey map.
  • Don't submit reports of non-residential structures or outbuildings (barns, carports, fences, or cars).
  • Don't submit damage reports to businesses.
  • Don't submit multiple reports for the same residence.
  • Don't put yourself in danger to take photos or submit a report.

Your reports help parish, state, and federal authorities better understand the location and severity of damage impacts. That information can also help expedite the individual assistance process following major disasters and emergencies.
