FEMA meets with CT residents to appraise flood aid

Southwestern Connecticut residents still recovering from flood damage from April?s nor?easter will have the opportunity to meet with federal emergency officials to ease the aid process.

Officials from the Federal Emergency Management Agency will be traveling around southwestern Connecticut for the next several weeks helping residents get back on track.

Officials will be armed with laptops, a mobile disaster control center and loads of paperwork to assist residents.

For residents planning on meeting with a FEMA representative, it is important to bring insurance information, a list of damages and any documentation of the damages.

FEMA says it encourages residents to meet with representatives and not make assumptions about whether or not they have enough damage to receive aid.
