After almost a week since Hurricane Ida swept through Southeastern PA, Springfield Township and surrounding areas are continuing to respond to storm-related concerns and clean-up damage. Residents are encouraged to use the resources highlighted below to their advantage as we continue to recover from the effects left by Ida.
Reporting Property Damage
- Montgomery County residents and business owners who sustained property damage are strongly encouraged to report it using the following two-part process. First, visit www.montcopa.org/ida and submit damage information using the County’s online form. Only one submission per household is needed.
- Also report all damages to Springfield Township's Emergency Management team, OEM@springfieldpd.org. Please include your name, address, telephone number, the type of damage you have sustained to your property (structural or otherwise), and lastly whether the damage was substantial and/or has left your home uninhabitable. Use of this e-mail reporting form will ensure that a comprehensive list is created for assessment activities.
More County Resources
Starting this week, Montgomery County will operate a Multi-Agency Resource Center (MARC) for residents affected by Hurricane Ida. The MARC will be open on Wednesday, September 8 from 12 noon to 7 p.m. and on Thursday, September 9 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. At the MARC, residents will have access to representatives from non-profit disaster relief organizations; municipal, County, and State emergency management agencies; elected officials; and various County and State government human services agencies.
The MARC will be located at 2 W. Lafayette Street, Norristown, PA 19401, the headquarters of the Montgomery County Intermediate Unit. Parking will be available on site. The MARC is also within walking distance of SEPTA’s Norristown Transportation Center, providing access to numerous bus routes and the Norristown High Speed Line. Regional Rail service on the Manayunk/Norristown Line remains suspended as crews repair damage caused by Hurricane Ida.
Hurricane Crisis Cleanup Hotline
The Hurricane Ida Crisis Cleanup Hotline has been established for residents who have sustained damage and need help with cutting fallen trees, removing affected drywall, flooring, and appliances, tarping roofs, and mold remediation. Call the Hotline at (844) 965-1386.
