Storm damage in Hampton estimated at $1.86 million

HAMPTON, Va. (WVEC) -- City officials believe that the flooding, wind, and rain from Hurricane Matthew has caused an estimated $1.86 million in damages. 

Almost 30 single-family homes, 18 apartment buildings, two trailer homes, a church, and a duplex were some of the structures that were damaged within the city. Most of the damage was due to water and fallen trees. 

While cleanup efforts continue throughout the city, officials are encouraging residents to call 311 if they have storm damage, even if they have private insurance and have notified their insurance companies. 

City Inspectors are currently out this week making damage assessments.

The state is provided the information about the storm damage to help locate where similar damage might occur in the future. 

Due to Virginia not being included in the federal disaster declaration, residents cannot request federal assistance at this time. For more information on the National Flood Insurance Program, please visit
