New York News

WELLS, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Last week’s Halloween storm has left a number of counties picking up the pieces from flood damage. 

New York State is stepping in this weekend to provide in-person assistance at nine locations.

Dan O’Hara, Director of the Office of Emergency Management for New York State, says anyone can walk in to one of these centers with issues ranging from well water testing, tetanus shots, or temporary living arrangements, and receive assistance. 

“The governor wants to make sure that the people that are impacted know that the state of New York is here to help them,” O’Hara told News10, “We want to try to get their life back to some semblance of normalcy.”
