More Flood Victims Are Eligible For State Aid

The state has made additional $45 million available to shoreline residents and communities affected by flooding.

The new batch of money will help out more residents who are both year-round and seasonal.

"It will reimburse homeowners up to $50,000 for damage to their homes. Small businesses, up to 100 employees, up to $50,000," said Governor Andrew Cuomo.

More people can also get the relief. For the first time, seasonal households making under $275,000 a year are eligible, as well as all permanent residents regardless of income.

The state's mobile command centers are assisting with insurance claims.
