FEMA helps Elmsford residents apply for disaster aid
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) was back in Elmsford today to help homeowners who suffered serious damage from Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee.
Carol Denniston, a community relations specialist for FEMA, says she and other workers went door-to-door to spread the word that federal help is available to those affected.
The Saw Mill River inundated parts of the village, leaving some homes sitting in several feet of water.
Denniston says FEMA workers are in the area to help make sure residents know how to apply for disaster aid.
