OCEAN CITY — The Town of Ocean City is encouraging residents and businesses affected by last month’s coastal storm Jonas to contact the Office of Emergency Management.

More specifically, information regarding the type and extent of loss experienced as a direct result of the weather incident, including losses in business revenue due to closures, is requested. Any information collected by the town will be forwarded to Maryland Emergency Management Agency to be used to determine areas that may require assistance in the recovery process.

“The Town of Ocean City suffered various damages from winter storm Jonas, which was a dangerous coastal/winter storm that impacted our entire region and state,” said Ocean City Emergency Services Director Joe Theobald. “We are asking our business and property owners to assess damages that may have occurred during this weather incident and report them to us to ensure we have a clear and comprehensive picture of the impact in Ocean City.”

Residents and business owners can contact their local Emergency Management Office at 410-723-6616 or the Planning and Community Development Department at 410-289-8942 with an estimate and amount of loss, as well as information on their insurance coverage, if any.

The deadline for reporting information is March 4.
