Oakland County Supports South Lyon In Disaster Declaration

Pontiac, MI - Oakland County Executive Dave Coulter has issued a county disaster declaration letter of support on behalf of the City of South Lyon to the State of Michigan asking for a disaster declaration from the governor’s office. While Oakland County did not experience as much storm damage as its neighbors, South Lyon officials have signed a local disaster declaration.

A disaster declaration is the first step in accessing state and federal resources to assist with storm damage recovery efforts.

“Fortunately, Oakland County appears to have largely escaped the worst of the damage from last night’s storm compared to some of our neighboring counties,” Coulter said. “Our Department of Emergency Management is in touch with and is providing assistance to communities that have reported more significant damage, notably South Lyon.”

Oakland County residents, businesses, and property owners who have experienced storm damage or have observed damage to roadways or other areas due to the recent storms are asked to fill out the Storm Damage Self-Reporting Tool. This is a self-reporting tool, not 911. If there is an immediate, life-threatening need, please call 911. Submitting a damage report is not an application for financial assistance. This is a data collection tool to allow us to assess storm damage.
