Moapa Band of Paiutes Tribal Nation Disaster

Incident Summary - Moapa Band of Paiutes Tribal Reservation

On September 8, 2014, the Moapa Band of Paiutes Tribal Reservation suffered an intense thunderstorm that created a flash flood event which resulted in damage to homes and property.  Many residents were trapped in their homes, as they were caught off guard by the unusual depth, volume and speed of the floodwaters.  A Declaration of Emergency, pursuant to state law, for the Moapa Band of Paiutes Tribal Reservation  was issued on September 9, 2014.  This Declaration activated state resources to assist local and tribal governments through the State Emergency Operations Plan and the United States Department of Homeland Security (FEMA Region IX) provided a team to assist Nevada in conducting a local, state, tribal and federal technical assistance and preliminary damage assessment.  The comprehensive preliminary damage assessment analysis was conducted the following week and revealed that severe damage occurred and that debris removal, emergency response and other protective measures resulted in substantial costs.
