Tompkins County Seeks State Disaster Declaration For Recent Flooding
The Tompkins County Legislature has requested disaster funding from the State to help cover damage caused by heavy rains earlier this month.
 
The county estimates that the heavy storms caused over half a million dollars in damage to local public infrastructure including roads and waterways.
 
Tompkins Director of Emergency Response Lee Shurteff told legislators that there was not enough damage statewide to seek a federal disaster declaration, but that a state disaster declaration would provide considerable funds to cover the damage.
