Two more New York counties qualify for federal assistance to help cover Hurricane Ida

Two all the more New York districts currently fit the bill for federal assistance to help cover the cost of damages from Hurricane Ida’s staggering floods, Gov. Kathy Hochul declared Sunday.

Local governments in Suffolk and Sullivan provinces are qualified to get public cash on account of the move, and residents in Suffolk County likewise meet all requirements for individual aid.

“We are working eagerly with our accomplices at all degrees of government to guarantee that families and communities recuperating from the impacts of Ida get the help they need to rebuild,” Hochul said in a statement declaring the additional help.

Something like 18 individuals kicked the bucket in the state from Ida’s floodwaters recently.

Thirteen of the casualties lived in New York City — with a large portion of them becoming caught in overflowed cellars in Queens and Brooklyn.

New York’s Bronx, Queens, Kings, Richmond and Westchester areas were at that point covered for individual assistance.
