WINDSTORM 2022

Message from the Mayor;

 

The Township of Tudor and Cashel has declared a state of emergency following the devastating weekend storm.  The after effects of the storm is causing extreme pressure on our roads crew.  Hydro One continues to work to restore power to all of our residents.  A huge thank you goes out to all the Community Members who joined together to help each other.  As they say, “it takes a village”, so heart-warming to hear how everyone pitched in and helped one another to get things cleaned up.

 

Mayor Clarke

The Community Centre located at 371 Weslemkoon Lake Road will be open between 9am – 4pm for those wishing to access WiFi Username “Library WiFi” – library1 is the password or to charge your devices.

There is also a water tap available on the East side of the building that is available 24/7.

At this time we are asking that residents DO NOT bring brush to the waste site, we appreciate that you want to clean your properties up however the waste site cannot handle the vast amounts at this time.

Brush can be dropped off at Limerick Township  – 89 Limerick Lake Rd.  There is also a site set up on Highway 62 – 5 km south of South Jordan Lake Road or 4 km north of West road on the west side of the highway. There will be signage.

REMINDER – NO DAY BURING ALLOWED!!

Many Areas in the Township had severe damage. There are many downed trees and lines.

While our roads crew have been working diligently to clear the roads there is much work yet to be done.  Logging trucks will be in the area to continue to remove large trees from the area, as well Hydro One will be continuing work to restore power.  There is lots of debris remaining on the roads, and some roads are reduced to one lane.  Please drive with extreme caution and only travel on roads that are necessary for your daily commute.

Crews have prioritized those roads with school bus routes as well as working around Hydro One crews.

Please be safe – be aware of fallen or low hanging wires, be patient as services are restored and check on your neighbours and seniors in the community.

The Township of Tudor and Cashel has reached out to the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing (MMAH) to request that they designate the township as an active area eligible for Disaster Relief Assistance for Ontarians (DRAO) due to the extensive damage caused by the recent wind storm on May 21, 2022.

In order for the MMAH to consider the township an active area they need to see that there is a significant amount of damage to personal property that is not covered by insurance.

 

If the MMAH deems the township an active area you must:

·        Show proof of identity and address (coverage is for primary residence only and residential tenants)

·        Photographs of damage to your property

·        Records of hours you spent on emergency cleanup

·        Copies of receipts and invoices for all costs incurred

·        Estimates from qualified contractors for repairs that are not yet completed

·        Letter from insurance company that details the type and cause of damage or loss, the amount that was covered under insurance, and the reason any portion of the damage or loss was not covered

It is Important to note that homeowners must first submit a claim to their insurance provider and that the DRAO program covers costs to return the property to a basic standard – more information and criteria can be found at https://www.ontario.ca/document/guidelines-apply-disaster-recovery-assistance-ontarians-drao/1-introduction-program-guide

 

More information on the program, and how to file a claim, can be found by visiting https://www.ontario.ca/page/apply-disaster-recovery-assistance

 

If this is a program that you believe you would qualify for, please email the township at clerk@tudorandcashel.com so that we may pass the information on to MMAH to attempt to have the Township declared an “active” area so that property owners can apply for the funding.  Please limit photos sent with your email to 2 or 3 only so as to not overload our server.
