New York State is sending a mobile command center to Branchport in Yates County, one of the towns hit hard by flooding earlier this month.
"Communities in Yates County and throughout the surrounding region recently experienced some of the worst flooding in decades, and the State is doing everything possible to help homeowners and businesses recover and rebuild,” Governor Andrew Cuomo said. "Last week the State announced funding and assistance available to help home and small business owners get back on their feet. For further support, the State is deploying the DFS Mobile Command Center to Branchport to offer help and advice to flood victims dealing with insurance-related issues so that they can start the process of rebuilding their homes and lives."
Representatives will be ready to help flood victims until 3 p.m. today at the Branchport Free Library on Route 54A. This is to help homeowners and business owners find out about help they can apply for in terms of loans and grants to recover from flood damage.
