Boardman Township has opened a phone hotline for residents and businesses to report damage caused by this past weekend’s flooding.

Jason Loree, the township administrator, tells 21 News that the dedicated phone number, 330-716-0038, is in response to the severe weather event that was responsible for flash flooding throughout various neighborhoods and the EF Zero tornado in the township on Saturday.

Residents who experienced damage related to the storm may call the dedicated number and leave their name, address, phone number, and type of damage to property.

The township is collecting the information with the Mahoning County Emergency Management Office to obtain a disaster declaration to qualify for government funding.

Victims are asked to keep any photo or video of storm damage.

Assessment teams may contact those who call in for on-site visits.
