The county’s preliminary estimate includes damage to county property, overtime costs for staff working during the emergency as well as the recovery, costs for equipment, materials, and supplies used in the recovery effort, and public safety costs for responses to emergencies arising from the hurricane.

Arlington will submit its damage estimates to the Commonwealth of Virginia, to be included in the state’s application to FEMA.
