City of Sarasota residents asked to report flooding damage from Eta

SARASOTA – City officials are asking residents to report any flooding damage their homes may have sustained as a result of Tropical Storm Eta.

Flooding at any residential structure can be reported by emailing City staff may be available for a home assessment to document the damage and answer questions.

The information will be used to assess the community’s flood risk for future storms and help the City develop its overall strategy of flood mitigation programs, projects and measures. The documentation could also be used to determine the homeowner’s eligibility for state or federal disaster funding if it becomes available.

Sarasota County officials report that parts of the city received more than 6 inches of rainfall Wednesday from the storm. Significant road flooding was observed in some areas, particularly on Lido Key.
