FRANKLIN, Texas (KBTX) -Robertson County officials are requesting any residents or businesses with damage from last week’s storm to report it.

Last week the Biden administration approved the request for individual assistance in 77 counties across the state. Gov. Greg Abbott announced that 31 other counties were approved for federal aid Monday. Brazos Valley counties that still aren’t on list include Robertson, Leon, and Trinity.

Still, many residents in counties like Robertson have dealt with widespread utility and water outages and weather-related damage. Those residents are urged to submit a Texas Disaster Impact Survey by 8:00 p.m. Monday.

Robertson County Judge Charles Ellison says doing so could make Robertson County eligible for FEMA assistance.

Officials say all water systems in Robertson County are up and in full operations. There is still a boil water notice issued for Hearne until at least Tuesday.
