STATEHOUSE- State Rep. Tom Dermody (R-LaPorte) wants his constituents in northwest Indiana to be aware of help available for victims of recent storms.  Northwest Indiana has been ravaged by severe weather in recent days, including wind and flooding.

Rep. Dermody and the Indiana Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is encouraging those with uninsured damage from the severe weather to report it quickly.  DHS is trying to assess the total amount of damage as it determines whether to pursue federal aid for Hoosiers.

Those with damage should go to www.in.gov/dhs, where they will be asked to complete a Damage Assessment Questionnaire (DAQ).  Individuals should be prepared to answer basic questions, such as their name, address, phone number, damage to property and the type of property damage sustained.

Constituents may also contact Rep. Dermody's office at 317-232-9793 for assistance in completing the DAQ.
