Preliminary Flood Damage Assessment

To determine the impact on Colbert County of the flooding brought on by the recent week long rains, the Colbert County Emergency Management Agency is conducting a survey to assess the magnitude of the situation.

To accomplish this, the EMA office is asking Colbert residents to submit any damage reports, suffered by them for their own private property, by filling out the following survey online.

If you've had damage to your property, or water in your home or business, it will help the Colbert County EMA and local government officials to identify the areas that need the most urgent attention. This does not guarantee any financial assistance at this time. This information will help us determine the feasibility of applying for financial aid.

This survey applies to unincorporated areas of Colbert County only. If you live inside the City Limits, you will need to check with your Mayor's office for information.

NOAA Weather Radio - Codes (SAME Codes)

SAME is an acronym for Specific Area Message Encoding. These numeric codes are based on FIPS codes; yet another acronym for "Federal Information Processing Standards". Basically these "ID numbers" are assigned to countries, states, counties and cities, simply for easy identification purposes. This works perfectly for programming the new NWR, Weather Alert Radios which allow you to receive alerts for specific counties pertinent to you and your family.

Here are the SAME code pages for Alabama, Mississippi and Tennessee Counties.
