Self Reporting Damage Survey

AUSTIN - Governor Greg Abbott and the Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM) are encouraging Texans to complete the Self Reporting Damage Survey to help the state identify damages across Texas and help emergency management officials gain an understanding of damages that occurred during the recent winter weather. This data is also needed to provide information to FEMA and highlight the need for federal disaster assistance for individuals. 

The voluntary survey, available in both English and Spanish, can be accessed by visiting: www.TDEM.texas.gov/warm. Reporting damage to the Texas Division of Emergency Management is a voluntary activity, is not a substitute for reporting damage to an insurance agency, and does not guarantee disaster relief assistance.

"I urge Texans to fill out the Self Reporting Damage Survey and provide crucial information on the winter weather impacts to their home or property," said Governor Abbott. "The information gleaned from this survey will help our state identify the full impact of this winter weather and help emergency management better serve Texans."

Rural Water: Tri-SUD

If in doubt, boil your water until all lines are repaired and pressure is restored.

Morris County Update February 20th:
Grocery stores are expecting trucks starting tonight thru the next few days.
Most stores are out of or low on fuel but expecting fuel trucks starting today thru the next several days.
As of now most or all major water leaks that the cities are aware of have been fixed. They are pressuring systems back up and trying to catch up. All the cities with the exception of Naples are under boil water notices.
Part of our county is on Tri-sud water and they have boil water advisory in effect as well.
Water samples must be tested before boil water advisories are lifted. Results will hopefully be available by mid-week.
Right now you should turn your water faucets off in order to allow pressure to build back up. Do not leave faucets open or dripping at this time.
Pewitt CISD and Daingerfield ISD schools will be closed Monday and Tuesday due to water issues.
All courthouse offices will be open Monday, February 22nd.
Thank you to our County Emergency Management Coordinator, Brandon Singletary, for being all over this. He has been in constant communication with me, with the state, and with city officials.
Thank you,
Doug Reeder
Morris County Judge.

Notice of Meeting to Vote on Tax Rate

  • Attorney General Ken Paxton today warned Texans that scammers have been spotted posing as state agencies to solicit money from hardworking consumers. There are variations of this scam, such as local law enforcement contacting you with a warrant, agencies asking for donations, back taxes or fines, or asking for your personal information to either confirm innocence or receive a payment. Government agencies do not email or  call individuals with financial solicitations. Consumers are advised to keep their personal information private and, if contacted by someone claiming to represent a government agency, go to its official website and find a legitimate phone number to confirm.

    “All Texans should be aware of unsolicited calls and emails from scammers impersonating leaders in their government. This is a dirty trick fraudsters are using to make a quick buck at the expense of hardworking Texans,” said Attorney General Paxton. “My office has a long history of pursuing fraudsters who attempt to deceive Texans, and we stand ready to assist anyone harmed by these scams and schemes.”

    When contacted via phone or email by someone purporting to be from a government agency, practice these steps to beat an imposter scam:

    ♦Do not wire money, confirm financial or personal information, including bank account, credit card, or Social Security numbers.
    ♦ Do not pay for a prize. If you enter and win a legitimate sweepstakes, you do not have to pay insurance, taxes, or shipping charges to collect your prize.
    ♦ Do not trust a name or phone number. Scammers often use fake names and phone numbers to disguise their identity and area code. ♦ Put your number on the Texas Do Not Call Registry and the National Do Not Call Registry.

    In November 2019, Attorney General Paxton warned Texans of scammers attempting to obtain personal and financial information by falsely claiming to be members of the Office of the Attorney General’s Crime Victim Services Division. Report suspected fraud to the Texas Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Division by calling toll-free 1-800-621-0508 or by filing an online complaint at https://www.texasattorneygeneral.gov/consumer-protection/file-consumer-complaint
