The office is encouraging residents to report storm damage that may have been sustained after the remnants of Tropical Storm Ida moved through the area. This will provide both the municipalities and the county a better understanding of the extent of damage throughout Lehigh County.

Lehigh County residents can report their damages to their home/property by completing the this survey. Please feel free to upload pictures of the damage into the survey as well.

Aerial footage documents the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Lehigh Valley.
