Report Your Isaias Damage Online Now

Residents of Brunswick County who received damage as a result of Hurricane Isaias can self-report their damages online at https://www.crisistrack.com/public/brunswickNC/request.html 

Crews are working throughout the county and towns conducting damage assessments to compile data that is then used by the State of North Carolina to determine if the damages from Hurricane Isaias have reached a level that would qualify Brunswick County for any federal assistance. Federal Programs and funding are typically not made available without these damage assessments.

Federal Assistance can be either Public Assistance (PA) relating to infrastructure and government services (as well as some non-profit agencies) or Individual Assistance (IA) which is assistance that directly assists the residents of the county.

Homeowners will still need to report damages to their individual insurance companies and will still have to apply to any programs that become available.
