Press Release -

Disaster Recovery Center to Open at 10 AM at Twin Peaks Mall


Computers to Assist with Disaster Applications Also Located at Longmont's Public Library
Longmont, CO --- The City of Longmont will open a Disaster Recovery Center (DRC) on Monday, September 16th at 10 am (MST). The center will be located in the Twin Peaks Mall, 1250 S. Hover Road, at the former Steve and Barry's storefront.
The DRC will allow property owners in the community to meet face to face with service providers to understand how they can receive help to begin the recovery process and to access computers to fill out applications for disaster assistance. For the initial opening, insurance company representatives will be available to assist anyone sustaining property damage. Representatives from FEMA and state agencies will not be present on opening day, but will join the center in coming days.
Residents and property owners in need of disaster assistance are asked to complete the online application located at www.disasterassistance.gov . To aid in this process, computers will be available at the Twin Peaks Mall DRC. Eighteen additional computers will be located at the Longmont Public Library (located at 409 4th Avenue with an entrance on Kimbark St.) using an in person reservation system. In each location, staff will be available to provide assistance and answer questions about completing forms.
Citizens wishing to access assistance should note the following: Contact your own insurance company before completing the application for assistance. Create a password for use with the form and keep this password for future reference. The application will take 18-20 minutes. Bring the following information to complete the registration: contact information for where you can be currently contacted (may be different from the damaged address), address information for where the damages occurred, information about any current insurance policies, Social Security number, and gross household income at the time of the flooding. If living in a shelter, residents are asked to check the "mass sheltering" box that is listed on the form. If applying for multiple disasters, residents will need to complete an online registration for each disaster. If filing for both home and business disaster assistance, residents will complete a single registration for the combined losses.
Keep copies of this federal ID number and claim number and at the end of the online process. Community members with property damage can also apply by phone for FEMA assistance only by calling 1-800-621-3362 (FEMA).

Longmont Flood Information Update 23:55PM 9/13/2013

As of about 8pm, 56 Colorado National Guard have been stationed with 28 Humvees at traffic control points throughout Longmont. Their current focus is to ensure the integrity of closed road barricades for safety and security but they are ready to serve the community in whatever capacity they are needed. Their presence frees up local emergency operations staff for other duties. They are expected to remain for 5 days.

The City of Longmont is asking residents and businesses to cease use of all irrigation systems and sprinklers in order to conserve water. This allows us to minimize runoff and to maximize our supply of fresh, treated water for our community's use or to share with other communites in case of emergencies.

We would like to remind all residents that while Lefthand Water District and the town of Lyons are under a notice to boil their water, City of Longmont customers are not.

A new road closure map and power outage map have been posted to www.longmontoem.org

Based on the notice that there is a Declaration of Emergency in the City of Longmont, the City is continuing to enact a curfew until 6am tomorrow morning in flood zones and evacuation areas. We are formally requesting that citizens comply with this curfew and remain indoors during these hours.
