After a severe storm struck East Texas, personnel from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) were recently in Van Zandt County to examine houses that were damaged by the flood. On January 6, FEMA officials inspected every home affected by heavy rainfall from December 26 to December 27.

County Fire marshal Chuck Allen told reporters that some residents whose homes were flooded had to stay in hotels or with friends. In Van Zandt County alone, authorities confirmed that there were as many as twenty houses affected by flooding. After the initial FEMA survey, affected residents are hoping for some kind of aid from the federal government.
