Governor Greg Abbott and the Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM) are asking Texans to report their damage to help state officials assess the total damage caused by the recent winter weather.

In a release, officials announced the information will be sent to FEMA and will "highlight the need for federal disaster assistance" for Texans.

The survey is voluntary and is not a substitute for reporting damage to an insurance agency. It also does not guarantee disaster relief assistance.

"I urge Texans to fill out the Self Reporting Damage Survey and provide crucial information on the winter weather impacts to their home or property," said Governor Abbott. "The information gleaned from this survey will help our state identify the full impact of this winter weather and help emergency management better serve Texans."
