In order for Harrison County to have an opportunity be included in counties eligible for Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) disaster assistance, the City of Marshall urges residents who sustained damage to complete the voluntary Self-Reporting Damage Survey as requested by the Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM).

If citizens need Internet access or assistance, the Marshall Public Library is available to provide computers and assistance on Monday-Friday from 9:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m.

This voluntary survey is available in both English and Spanish and can be accessed by visiting: We want to remind citizens that reporting this damage to the Texas Division of Emergency Management is a voluntary activity and is not a substitute for reporting damage to your insurance agency. This survey will not only aid the state in identifying damage across Texas but help emergency management officials gain an understanding of these damages. 

Seventy-seven counties in Texas have been designated as FEMA eligible for homeowners and renters to receive federal assistance for sustained damage. Disaster assistance may include financial aid for temporary lodging and home repairs, low-interest loans to cover uninsured property losses, and other programs to help individuals and business owners recover from the effects of the disaster.

“I urge Texans to fill out the Self-Reporting Damage Survey and provide crucial information on the winter weather impacts to their home or property. The information gleaned from this survey will help our state identify the full impact of this winter weather and help emergency management better serve Texas,” stated Governor Abbott.
