NY counties awarded flood damage assistance

Posted: Updated:

New York is getting federal disaster aid dollars to help clean up from recent flooding, including part of our region.

Friday, President Obama signed a major disaster declaration for 12 upstate New York counties, including Franklin County.

The federal aid will supplement state and local efforts to fix damage done by flooding between June 28 and July 4, which caused an estimated $33 million of damage.

FEMA is also looking at whether other counties might be eligible for assistance.
