Storm Dry Ice Distribution
We have this email update in at 11 a.m. from state Sen. Greg Ball; note the dry ice distribution:
A few quick updates:
1) We will have a limited supply of dry ice and water available at the Heritage Hills community center in located in Somers started at 12PM today (Thursday). Supplies will be given out on a first-come, first-served basis.
2) Our Veterans’ Hall of Fame for tonight has been postponed to a later date (TBD).
3) Our Veterans’ Thanksgiving Dinner is still on for this Sunday.
I would also urge you to report damage and apply for FEMA aid. The President issued a major disaster declaration for New York State the night Hurricane Sandy hit, making residents immediately eligible to apply for aid.
I am urging residents to take multiple photos of the damage and first file a claim with their insurance company, then FEMA, right away.
Residents may apply for aid at http://www.
FEMA provides up to $31,900 in aid to individuals and households for a variety of needs; although, some forms of Individuals and Households Program (IHP) assistance have limits.
