[ARCHIVED] Storm Damage

Roof Damage

12/14/22 Update

The National Weather Service has confirmed an EF-1 tornado with peak winds of 90 mph caused damage in NRH during Tuesday's storms. 

12/13/22 Post

Storm damage assessments are taking place across NRH following the severe weather on Tuesday morning, Dec. 13. As of mid-morning, our teams had reported about 20 houses and businesses with damage – that number may rise over the next few hours. There haven't been any reported injuries. The preliminary line of damage spans approximately two miles from around Smithfield/Starnes northeast to Precinct Line/North Tarrant. Fire station one reported seeing rotation just south of the station as well as hearing a continuous rumble sound when the second Tornado Warning was activated. (8:15 am)  

Homeowners and businesses are encouraged to report storm damage to the Texas Division of Emergency Management at We encourage community members to self report their damage to the state for tracking purposes of overall regional effects of the storm. If you need any resources beyond reporting damage, please call our non-emergency number so we can help connect you to the appropriate resource - 817-281-1000.

The city is looking into the damage reports to determine what needs may arise regarding large trash and debris from the storm. An update will be provided as quickly as possible to our community members as the cleanup continues. If your trash has blown down the street, please help your neighbors and return trashcans. Republic Services is running today; however, there may be delays in getting to some of the neighborhoods. 

Avoid Contractor Scams

Whenever there is storm damage, there are scam artists looking to take advantage. Even though you want repairs completed quickly, you should always take time to screen your contractor, get written bids and check references. You should also be wary if a contractor asks for a large or full down payment. Visit the Texas Department of Insurance website at for tips on avoiding contractor scams. 

In NRH, emergency repairs may be started without a permit, but permits and inspections should be requested as soon as possible. Homeowners’ insurance often requires work to be done by a licensed professional with the required permits and inspections in order to process an insurance claim. A roofing permit is needed anytime decking is being replaced, and a fence permit is required when four or more fence panels are being replaced. If you have questions or need more information, please give the Building Inspections & Permits Office a call at 817-427-6300 or visit
