Cuomo Deploys State Resources To Assist With Flooding
Governor Andrew Cuomo is deploying additional state resources to assist communities impacted by this weekend's severe storms and flooding.
Cuomo says state officials are continuing to coordinate with localities to assess the impact of the flooding, provide state support and address any umet needs.
The Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services has distributed 15 pumps, various hoses and four generators to the Town of Whitesboro for flood cleanup. 1,600 filled sandbags were given to the City of Utica.
"This weekend's storms resulted in flooding in communities across the state. Officials from numerous state agencies are on the ground with additional equipment, personnel and resources to assist communities that were hit hard by the storms," Cuomo said. "Make no mistake, we will do everything in our power to help impacted communities recover as quickly as possible."
In Oneida County, the DEC is overseeing work to ensure the integrity of the wastewater treatment plant.
