FEMA opens disaster relief center in Rockland County

After Hurricane Irene and the remnants of Tropical Storm Lee handed a one-two punch to residents in Rockland County, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has opened a disaster relief center in Pomona.

The storms caused millions of dollars in damage to homes and businesses all over the region.

The FEMA center in Pomona will allow people to get the help they need in person. The agency also opened a second relief center in White Plains.

Officials say the centers will stay open as long as there is a need in the community.
