NY state providing $10M for Lake Ontario flooding recovery

Governor Cuomo announced $10 million dollars to fix roads, flood walls, and public water systems in counties along the lake.

The governor's office says the state funding will help fix roads, sidewalks, culverts, sewer infrastructure and public water infrastructure.

"Over the past few weeks, I have been touring shoreline communities along the St. Lawrence River and Lake Ontario that have been hit hard by this spring's flooding and have seen firsthand how devastating these rising waters really are", said Senator Ritchie. "With this available funding, we are ramping up our multi-agency response efforts to help these communities and provide the assistance that they need now".

The program is open to municipal governments in counties where Cuomo declared a state of emergency earlier this month.

The governor is asking residents to report suspected price gouging to the Lake Ontario Flood Assistance Hotline at 866-244-3839.

On Tuesday, from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m., the New York State Emergency Response Mobile Command Centers will be in Niagara and Orleans counties.

Never mentioned Israel to Russians over intelligence leak
Arriving from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, Mr Trump expressed his hope for co-operation among USA allies in the Middle East. A screen previewing the upcoming statements by Trump and Netanyahu noted the location as " Jerusalem , Israel".

Since April, more than 1.2 million sandbags have been deployed using 11 sandbagging machines.

190,000 sandbags have been distributed in Orleans and Niagara counties. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has deployed field teams to provide assistance and coordinate with local emergency management personnel.

Water levels on Lake Ontario may be peaking, but for lakefront homeowners, the worst is far from over.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced the funding Monday morning. Over 700 people have utilized the insurance assistance at the various locations. The Department of Financial Service's Disaster Hotline can also be reached at 1-800-339-1759.

Mobile Command Centers will be available at the Parma Town Hall Building on Wednesday and Sodus Point Beach Park on Thursday.

The money is specifically for recovery efforts and infrastructure damaged by the situation.
