Joint Preliminary Damage Assessment teams, comprised of local, state and federal representatives, will visit sites in Accomack County that were damaged by Hurricane Sandy Friday, Nov. 2, beginning at 10:30 AM at the Accomack County Emergency Management Center to assess damage from Hurricane Sandy.

Representatives from Accomack County, Representatives from the Virginia Department of Emergency Management (VDEM)and Representatives from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will be part of the team.

When localities suffer damage from natural or man-made emergencies, evaluations are made of the extent of damage and the amount of uninsured loss. The evaluations or preliminary damage assessments help determine whether or not a locality may qualify for federal assistance to recover from a disaster. Federal assistance through FEMA does not apply to loss that is covered by private insurance. The total amount of uninsured property must meet a minimum threshold before federal assistance is considered.
