To All Woolwich Residents:

We are nearing the end of the weather event that had a significant impact on the Town of Woolwich. Thank you all for your patience as CMP and the crews from out of State worked to restore power to the Town.

I am currently completing FEMA paperwork to document the damage that the Town sustained. While I have a good handle on the damage within the town,
I want to ensure that I capture the whole picture.

* Individual Residents - Please let me know if you have any damage to your primary residence, and how much damage.

* Businesses - Please let me know if there is damage to businesses in Woolwich. Also, please include if the business was closed for more than 72 hours.

* Pictures - Please send any pictures of damage to residences, businesses, or roads. The pictures will only be beneficial to our documentation of this storm if the location of the picture is somehow documented.

Please send this information to: woolwichema@gmail.com
as soon as possible. I will be compiling the documentation and need to submit it to the State by Wednesday November 8th.

Additionally, please know that I am aware of the frustration with this storm and the power restoration delays. I will be attending an after action review of the response to this storm at the County level, which will then go to the State level. I need to document the damage now, and will reach out for individual concerns about the response at a later date.
