Burnet County Severe Weather April 9, 2024

Tuesday’s severe weather caused damage throughout Burnet County. County Officials in coordination with The Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM) encourage citizens to report storm damage to property by submitting a damage assessment survey.
Residents can report storm damage to homes and businesses using the Individual State of Texas Assessment Tool (iSTAT) damage survey. The iSTAT damage survey can be filled out in English and Spanish online by visiting damage.tdem.texas.gov and clicking on “April 08 - Ongoing Severe Weather Event"
The information provided in the iSTAT damage survey helps emergency management officials understand damages that have occurred and identify any immediate resource needs. Survey information also helps officials determine if the state meets federal requirements for various forms of federal disaster assistance. Reporting damage through the iSTAT tool is a voluntary activity and is not a substitute for reporting damage to your insurance agency. It does not guarantee disaster relief assistance.
