Disaster declaration issued for Lake Ontario flooding

Water erosion took down trees on the banks of Old Fort Niagara in Youngstown on May 4

New York State will now receive federal funds to assist Oswego County and those in the Lake Ontario area who were impacted by the summer's unprecedented flooding along the shoreline.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency announced Tuesday that President Donald Trump declared a "major disaster" in parts of NY.

The declaration which will make federal money available to the state and local governments. "This damage is beyond the response capabilities of state and local governments, which is why I've continued to call for a federal disaster declaration", said Congresswoman Claudia Tenney.

The White House says the counties affected by the declaration are Niagara, Orleans, Jefferson, Oswego, St. Lawrence and Wayne.

The declaration also frees up federal aid on a cost-sharing basis for flood hazard mitigation measures across NY state.

There are two megasites in Chatham County, one in Edgecombe County and one on the Guilford-Randolph counties border. A Tennessee official confirmed last week that a site near Memphis had been taken out of the running.

Federal funding is available on a cost-sharing basis for emergency work and the fix or replacement of facilities damaged by flooding in Jefferson, Niagara, Orleans, Oswego, St. Lawrence, and Wayne counties.

Additional designations may be made at a later date if requested by the state and warranted by the results of further damage assessments, FEMA noted.

Upstate New York members of Congress and the state's US senators, Kirsten Gillibrand and Chuck Schumer, urged FEMA to approve the disaster assistance.

$7 million of that is available to individual homeowners whose properties were affected by the flooding.
