Lehigh County, PA- A Joint Preliminary Damage Assessment (JPDA) is currently being conducted for all Lehigh County municipalities, residents, and businesses affected by Tropical Storm Isaias. On behalf of PEMA and FEMA, the Lehigh County Office of Emergency Management is requesting those who incurred substantial uninsured or underinsured damages to submit their information to the county’s online damage assessment tool. This is a time-sensitive matter and must be done as quickly as possible.

The link is as follows:

This tool will request information about the property and the damages, as well as allow you to upload pictures, documents, and other information that will verify damages. As much information as possible should be supplied to help avoid delays.

Residents and businesses must submit their information by no later than noon on Wednesday, September 16, 2020. Both FEMA and PEMA have already started reviewing data that has been submitted. As the process moves forward, additional information may be needed to clarify and justify the reported expenses. Those who are unsure if they qualify for assistance are encouraged to submit their information for consideration.
