If you are a resident or business owner that has been affected by the recent storm damage, we encourage you to report your assessment, so the City of Johnston can provide the information to Polk County. They are asking for the information to be compiled for emergency declaration for FEMA.  If you prefer to report your damage directly, we encourage you to call 2-1-1. This information will provide the number of residents affected by the recent floods and will help determine resources our community may need.
