County Declared Disaster Area

President Bush has declared Westchester County along with Rockland and Orange counties as a federal disaster area following last week’s storm, meaning that local residents and businesses can start applying for federal aid to begin rebuilding.

The declaration at this point applies to only individuals and businesses that suffered damage from the storm. County officials have been told that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is still reviewing damage to public facilities – including governments and schools -- to determine if they qualify for a federal disaster declaration.
