FRANKLIN, Tenn. (WTVF) — Williamson County Emergency Management Agency officials asked for the public's help in their effort to document storm damage following Tuesday's EF-0 tornado.
On Tues., Sept. 1, the tornado touched down in the Southwestern part of the county bringing down mainly trees, but the EMA is looking for any type of damage throughout the county.
The information will be used to assist the department in collecting consolidated impact information and for the National Weather Service as they assess the damage.
“We want the community to know that they can use this survey whenever Williamson County suffers from a severe weather event,” WCEMA Director Todd Horton said in a press release, “This survey helps us better understand the impacts to our community, helps determine our community’s eligibility for disaster-related financial assistance and provides community members with a convenient avenue to share their storm-related impacts. .”
The survey will collect specific information about:
- What is damaged
- Types of damage
- Extent of damage
- Contact Information
