FEMA will be in Brookfield today to look at damage from the May 15th macroburst. 5th District Congresswoman Elizabeth Esty will join officials from FEMA and Brookfield on their tour.
During the immediate aftermath of the storm, 91% of Brookfield residents were left without power. Some were without power for up to ten days. Esty and Senator Richard Blumenthal previously surveyed the storm damage last month.
Brookfield officials have expanded the storm damage submission form to now allow residents to send up to 10 pictures. Residents can now also give best estimates of insured and uninsured property loss. Anyone who has already submitted a report can resend the forms to include the additional information. Brookfield officials are asking that residents only send information about personal property as the town has all of the information needed for town-owned property, including rights-of-way, parks and open spaces.
