This resource contains shapefiles for FEMA Damage Assessments, Auto Claims, and Property Claims, publicly available here [1].
Damage assessments are organized in daily map layers. These appear to be cumulative, but some days' records do not include all the previous days' records.
- Aug 27, 2017: Coastal damage assessments (26,027 records)
- Aug 28: Damage assessments (78,218)
- Aug 29: Damage assessments (115,412)
- Aug 30: Damage assessments (137,754)
- Aug 31: Damage assessments (161,366)
- Sep 02: Damage assessments (156,099)
A document is provided that explains the damage assessment methodology.

Auto and Property Claims are each in a single shapefile, containing all records from Aug 25-Sep 08:
- Auto claims, Aug 25-Sep 08 (203, 312 records)
- Property claims, Aug 25-Sep 08 (226,167)
These identify location, date and type of loss. These are all claims submitted during this period, which may include damages not caused by Hurricane Harvey.

Other damage assessments and inundation depth grids are available at the FEMA Natural Hazard Risk Assessment Program (NHRAP) ftp site [2]. These include:
- Windfield contours [3]
- PDC Hazus Wind Adv26 (Hurrevac) [4]
