Situation Report | September 13, 2021    

On September 10, 2021, Governor Kathy Hochul and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) announced the openings of several Disaster Recovery Centers that will provide information, assistance and help for New Yorkers who were impacted by the storms and flooding caused by the remnants of Hurricane Ida.

Recovery specialists from FEMA and the U.S. Small Business Administration will be available to answer questions and provide information on the types of federal help available to homeowners, renters and business owners as a result of the major disaster declarations stemming from the hurricane. 

The Boroughs of the Bronx, Queens, Kings, Richmond and Westchester County were designated for Individual Assistance under the major disaster declaration for the Remnants of Hurricane Ida. 

Information on Recovery Center locations is available on the Governor’s website.

Impacted New York City residents may also call 311 or visit https://www1.nyc.gov/site/em/resources/ida.page to access available City services.
