I have a storage unit at the Lewis River Mini Storage. The manager, of the storage facility, called me on December 11, 2015, to inform me that a damn broke behind the storage facility and all storage units had flooded with approx 2 inches of water. It is a disaster and all renters are forced to move out of their unit to different unit. There is thousands of dollars in damages with no reimbursement. However, there is no available information on the damn breaking and nothing in the news about the flooding at Lewis River Mini Storage.

If a damn really broke due to flooding am I able to file an online form for damages?
