Damage assessment data request
State of Texas
City of Hearne
The Governor announced a statewide effort to collect damage assessment data for this unprecedented event. This information is being collected to help officials across the state gain an understanding of damages for individuals throughout Texas. EMCs will have direct access to all reporting via WebEoc on the Recovery Common Operating Picture Board.
Our objective in this effort is to demonstrate the scale of this disaster at the local level. As such, this will be a local effort with support from the state. Consider pushing out the access link and QR code on social media for the best results. Our previous use of this product has yielded excellent results in multiple large disasters. With this detailed information, we will be able to demonstrate the total impact statewide.

Hearne, a people-friendly town of almost 5,000, is in Robertson County. Conveniently located in central Texas in the middle of a triangle formed by Dallas/Fort Worth, Houston, & San Antonio, Hearne is within 200 miles of 80% of the Texas population.
Only 18-25 miles from Bryan/College Station and Texas A&M University, Hearne offers visitors and residents alike an opportunity to escape the hustle & bustle of the big city to enjoy local amenities (like quality restaurants and new hotels) and Hearne’s peaceful, small-town charm.
Known as “The Crossroads Of Texas,” Hearne is nestled at the crossroads of three major highways (TX6, US79, and US190) as well as two major Union Pacific Railroad lines.
A railroaders' paradise, Missouri Pacific’s former east-west line crosses Southern Pacific’s former north-south line in Hearne.
