Have debris or damages following Isaias? These resources can help.
BOLIVIA, N.C. – Working to remove debris or need to report damages due to Hurricane Isaias? Here are some local resources and assistance to help you.
Update (Aug. 28): Residents on private roads in the unincorporated areas of Brunswick County need to place their vegetative debris from Hurricane Isaias in in the right-of-way of their property no later than the evening of Sunday, Aug. 30 for collection.
Crews will make one pass across the county and could arrive in any area as early as Monday. Any vegetative debris that is not on the right-of-way by Sunday evening will not be collected.
A right-of-way is generally defined as the edge of your property before the curb. If you have a sidewalk, ditch, or utility line in front of your house, make sure that your debris does not cover or restrict these areas.
This service will only include the private roads in the unincorporated areas of the county, including private roads in gated communities. The service will also collect any tree hangers or leaners in the rights-of-way.
This service will not collect or remove tree hangers or leaners that are on private property outside of a right-of-way.

Report Your Isaias Damage Online Now
Residents of Brunswick County who received damage as a result of Hurricane Isaias can self-report their damages online at https://www.crisistrack.com/public/brunswickNC/request.html
Crews are working throughout the county and towns conducting damage assessments to compile data that is then used by the State of North Carolina to determine if the damages from Hurricane Isaias have reached a level that would qualify Brunswick County for any federal assistance. Federal Programs and funding are typically not made available without these damage assessments.
Federal Assistance can be either Public Assistance (PA) relating to infrastructure and government services (as well as some non-profit agencies) or Individual Assistance (IA) which is assistance that directly assists the residents of the county.
Homeowners will still need to report damages to their individual insurance companies and will still have to apply to any programs that become available.
