Flooding, wind, and landslides from recent winter storms have buffeted residents and businesses across King County. Those who suffered property damage or other losses since January 20, 2020 may be eligible for financial assistance. Eligibility is determined through a damage assessment process, now underway, that takes into account the total reported losses within King County.
Individuals and businesses in King County are encouraged to submit reports of losses to King County Emergency Management online at kingcounty.gov/damage available now, or by phone at 1-800-523-5044 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. beginning Tuesday, February 11.
Submitting a report does not guarantee reimbursement.
Damage reports are for uninsured losses. Before filing a damage report with King County, residents and business owners should contact their insurance provider about existing coverage and deductibles. They are also urged to document damage with photographs and keep records of all cleanup and repair costs.
Residents in the process of removing yard waste and storm debris can visit kingcounty.gov/solidwaste to identify local trash haulers, or companies that recycle wood.
