Amended Return-Supporting Documentation Needed For Hurricane Irma Losses?

I will need to amend my 2017 return due to additional Hurricane Irma losses. Should documentation substantiating the additional losses be mailed in along with the amended return? If so, what type(s) of documentation is required? Thanks.

Amended Return-Supporting Documentation Needed For Hurricane Irma Losses?

No, you do not need to include anything other than what is required.  Adding extra stuff may further delay the processing of your amendment (it already takes about 14 weeks, probably longer due to the pandemic).  If they want additional information, they will request it.  All you need to do is keep good detailed records in the unlikely event you are asked to substantiate your deductions and/or credits taken.
