FEMA representatives reaching out to Bronx residents
Representatives from FEMA are reaching out to Bronx residents today, knocking on doors to give information on how to receive funding after Irene.
FEMA community relations teams will visit areas throughout the borough to let homeowners, renters and small businesses know exactly what services are available to help with those unmet needs.
In addition to going door-to-door, earlier this week FEMA opened a disaster relief center at Bronx Borough Hall to help with hurricane relief.
Estimates put the total damage from Irene at around $7 billion. The storm caused about $1 billion worth of damage in New York State alone.
