GREENWICH - The Federal Emergency Management Agency says the majority of southwestern Connecticut residents who called to report damage from the storms in March have yet to apply for aid to make repairs.

In Fairfield County, FEMA says only 212 households have applied for federal disaster relief. Norwalk had 76 applicants, while Stamford, one of the state?s hardest-hit communities, had 24.

FEMA says it has distributed aid to 1,165 households across the state.

Officials are reminding residents that calling 211 to report storm damage is not the same as registering for aid with FEMA.
