Storm Damage Form

This form is designed for Christian County Residents to enter information about storm damage that occurs to their property. Generally, this is for minor to moderate type storms. If there is considerable damage from the storm, or a large tornado with widespread damage, the Emergency Management Office will conduct a more indepth assessment.

Whenever a storm occurs, we try to capture all the damage that occurs in the county. This helps the National Weather Service and other partner agencies to evaluate the different products that they offer, such as radar, watches and warnings, etc. If you have had damage from a storm, please help us out and report what occured.
