New York Gov. Cuomo Announces Storm Aid for Long Island

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said the state is providing $8.5 million to Nassau and Suffolk counties on Long Island. The money will be used to pay expenses from damage done last year by Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee.

The storms caused widespread destruction across the state. Cleanup costs statewide are expected to exceed $1.6 billion.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency usually covers 75 percent of eligible disaster response and recovery costs.

Earlier this month, Cuomo announced the state would pay $61 million to 25 counties to cover costs for emergency shelter, road, water system and infrastructure repairs and other clean-up projects. Cuomo added $8.5 million for Nassau and Suffolk counties last week.
