Province releases disaster assistance maps for tornado victims
Maps detail which homeowners can apply to provincial program
The provincial government has released detailed maps to help people affected by last week's tornadoes figure out if they are eligible for provincial disaster assistance.
On the weekend, the province announced that those hit by the storm would be eligible to apply to the province to have certain expenses covered.
The disaster assistance program covers damage to a person's primary residence or small business and will help repair or replace essential property — for instance, one's house — if it's not covered by insurance.
Municipal Affairs and Housing Minister Steve Clark said anyone who plans to apply to the program should keep records on what they're spending right now.
"I remind and urge affected residents to take photographs of damage and keep all receipts for expenses and repairs," Clark said.
"This will help insurance providers and the government speed up the application review process."
