Gov. Cuomo not asking for federal help to deal with flooding, for now
Posted by news on 5/19/2017 4:40:00 AM.

Governor Andrew Cuomo's office says New York can't ask for federal aid to help out with damage caused by rising Lake Ontario water levels, yet.

Lake Ontario is reportedly at its highest recorded level in over a century and may rise another five inches in the next month. And with that, flooding is expected to continue to damage shorefront properties and communities in the near future.

A spokesperson for the governor, however, says that there needs to be about $28 million in damage before a request for federal aid would even be entertained.
