Greenburgh residents fed up with constant flooding

Greenburgh residents are still drying out from nearly two weeks of flooding, and now they are taking their case up with local officials. Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee inundated the town with heavy rains, causing widespread property damage and power outages."I lost $27,000 worth of stuff," says resident Tom Bock. Town Supervisor Paul Feiner says if FEMA approves Greenburgh's recovery plans, the town can receive grants to cover property allocations and federal buyouts. However, even if the buyouts are possible, Feiner says it may take months or even years for results to take hold. Residents say they are low on patience, and that having extra cash for repairs will not change the fact that the town has chronic flooding problems.Flooding brings Hudson Valley roadways to a halt - againRemnants of Tropical Strom Lee cause damage in Rockland County
