Thurston County Emergency Management Looking for December 2022 Damage Assessments


Thurston County Emergency Management is asking county residents to submit initial damage assessments if their property was damaged by flooding or high winds in December 2022, according to a news release. 

Initial damage assessments are processed by Thurston County Emergency Management and sent to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), which uses them to decide if a disaster should be declared. 

“A declared disaster may provide direct assistance to residents with disaster-caused unmet needs,” the release stated. 

While the county’s website where damage assessment forms are hosted is currently being restructured and unavailable, residents can simply email damage reports to or call Thurston County Emergency Management at 360-867-2800 to report property damage. 

Residents can also receive emergency alerts about hazardous conditions by signing up for Thurston Community Alerts at
