U.S. Senators Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand announced over $26 million in federal funding for sanitation cleanup after Superstorm Sandy in New York City.

 

The storm brought strong winds and heavy rains to the New York tri-state area, resulting in downed trees, power lines and broken tree limbs. It also inundated residential areas across New York City and the tri-state area roads were blocked with debris causing hazardous driving conditions.

Schumer and Gillibrand said the federal emergency management agency public assistance funding for the New York City department of sanitation, will reimburse the cost of cleanup in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy.
