Latest update for residents affected by IDA
Starting this week, Montgomery County will operate a Multi-Agency Resource Center (MARC) for residents affected by Hurricane Ida. The MARC will be open on Wednesday, September 8 from 12 noon to 7 p.m. and on Thursday, September 9 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. At the MARC, residents will have access to representatives from non-profit disaster relief organizations; municipal, County, and State emergency management agencies; elected officials; and various County and State government human services agencies.
The MARC will be located at 2 W. Lafayette Street, Norristown, PA 19401, the headquarters of the Montgomery County Intermediate Unit. Parking will be available on site. The MARC is also within walking distance of SEPTA’s Norristown Transportation Center, providing access to numerous bus routes and the Norristown High Speed Line. Regional Rail service on the Manayunk/Norristown Line remains suspended as crews repair damage caused by Hurricane Ida.
Montgomery County residents and business owners who sustained property damage are strongly encouraged to report it using the following two-part process. First, visit www.montcopa.org/ida and submit damage information using the County’s online form. Only one submission per household is needed. To date, nearly 1,400 damage reports have been received. Second, contact the township or borough in which the damaged residence or business is located. Contact information for municipal governments is available at www.montcopa.org/ida.
The Hurricane Ida Crisis Cleanup Hotline has been established for residents who have sustained damage and need help with cutting fallen trees, removing affected drywall, flooring, and appliances, tarping roofs, and mold remediation. Call the Hotline at (844) 965-1386.
Borough council meets the 1st Wednesday of each month.
