City of Mission Asking Residents To Report Financial Damage Due To Floods

Local News

The City of Mission was one of the hardest hit areas in last week’s flooding. Now the city is working tirelessly to recover.

City officials say they had about seven inches of rain fall on Thursday morning. Currently some areas report as much as 14 inches. Right now the city is asking residents to report their storm damage estimates to help reach the $38 million threshold needed to qualify for federal funds.

City Manager Martin Garza says, “The hardest thing today is that you can’t drive in front of these subdivisions and estimate the total damage because most of the damages are inside your home. Furniture, your trim work your tile and so forth. So it’s important that we get the assistance of our residents, making sure they report the proper estimate of damages, so we can report that back to not only the county but the state and the government.”
