Tallahassee, Fla. Today, the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO) activated the Business Damage Assessment Survey to assess the impact severe weather events had on Central Florida businesses. Survey responses will allow the state to gather data and evaluate resources impacted businesses may need to recover after multiple severe weather events that occurred March 11-12, 2022. 

“DEO has activated the Business Damage Assessment survey at Governor DeSantis’ direction and encourages any business impacted by the severe weather events to complete the survey at,” said DEO Secretary Dane Eagle. “The data produced by survey responses helps the state evaluate the extent of the damage and prepare to provide vital resources as needed.”

Because of foregoing conditions, Governor Ron DeSantis issued Executive Order 22-56 declaring a state of emergency in Clay, Highlands, Marion, and Putnam counties. All businesses impacted should complete the survey.
