In the aftermath of the July storms that ravaged southern Cayuga County there were concerns raised that roads that were washed out would be vulnerable once winter snows arrived.
Now that the snow is here, will the repairs hold up?
Cayuga County Emergency Management Deputy Director Niel Rivenburgh tells Finger Lakes News Radio the recent Federal Emergency Management Agency decision to deny the state’s major disaster declaration request caught everyone by surprise.
The state put damages from the summer flooding north of $30 Million. Rivenburgh says Cayuga and Oneida Counties accounted for over $11 Million in damages that were validated by FEMA.
