ATTENTION
RESIDENTS INSIDE THE TOWN LIMITS OF AVOCA ONLY
NO LAWN BUSINESSES OR CONTRACTORS!!!


Crews contracted by the town of Avoca will be making multiple trips throughout the town to pick up  storm debris. They are not allowed to enter private property, but they will pick up all debris  their equipment can reach from the side of the road.

Please place debris at the curb/right of way and sort tree/vegetative storm debris from other types  of storm debris. Please keep garbage or recycling bins separate from the storm debris, if possible,  as the storm crews are not the same crews as the normal garbage or recycling crews. Storm debris  crews will be using large grapple claws operated from above their tall trucks, so please do not  stack debris on top of meters, against guy wires, or other items which might get damaged by the  collection equipment.

If you need assistance in cutting up and moving tree debris to the right of way, we can connect you  to volunteer agencies that are able to help. These same agencies may also aid in moving trees off  houses, tarping roofs, etc. If this type of tornado recovery assistance is needed, please email  your name, address in Avoca, and an explanation of the help needed to the following email address:  avocatornadohelp@gmail.com  We will respond with a list of organizations you can call.

 

Benton County requests structural storm damage reports from citizens affected by the May 26 storm

 
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Benton County requests structural storm damage reports from citizens affected by the May 26 storm

  Homeowners and business owners can report structural damage to their property through the Citizen Damage Reporter pinned to the top of the Benton County Government website.
  Benton County Division of Public Safety requests residents report personal property structural damage from the May 26 storm through the Benton County Citizen Damage Reporter. The Citizen Damage Reporter is a portal where citizens can enter their estimated personal property structural damage.
  Individuals should only report damage if debris, such as trees, has punctured their homes. Benton County will need clear photos of the damage done to the home itself. All reports sent in will be reviewed by the Division of Public Safety and used for disaster declaration purposes. Good, accurate public surveys speed up assistance timeframe.
  Benton County needs damage report information, as it will assist us with information the State and FEMA need to determine if Individual Assistance (IA) will be available. Individual Assistance (IA) is to assist individuals with uninsured losses to their homes. It does not help with vehicular damage, downed trees, or fences; it is strictly for a person’s residential structure only. The damage report information will only be shared with the State of Arkansas and FEMA for these purposes. If IA becomes available, we will reach out to the individuals and let them know the steps for applying for IA through the State and/or FEMA. Governor Sarah Sanders has signed an executive order declaring a disaster for Benton County.

  If Benton County attains a presidential disaster declaration, then citizens may be eligible for federal assistance through FEMA. More details will be released for residents if a federal disaster declaration is made.
