FEMA to open offices in Connecticut

The Federal Emergency Management Agency says it will open offices in all eight counties in Connecticut by Thursday to assess damage and collect information from residents about Irene.

Governor Dannel Malloy and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano toured damaged homes in East Haven yesterday.

They say more than 300 homes statewide suffered major damage.

They are urging residents to apply for federal aid.
