Location: Unknown

Congresswoman Nita Lowey (D-Westchester/Rockland) today issued the following statement on the FEMA major disaster declaration (MDD) for Westchester and Rockland Counties:

"I am pleased Westchester and Rockland Counties have received a major disaster declaration from FEMA, making both counties eligible for both public and individual assistance. This is an important step as it gives residents and local leaders confidence that federal aid will be available to help recover from this disaster. That is why I immediately called on FEMA to issue this declaration after the storm.
