York a Major Disaster Area

declared Western New York a major

disaster area.  This designation triggers

the release of federal funds to help

individuals and communities recover from

the severe October snowstorm.  It is

imperative that individuals contact their

insurance company, keep all storm-related

receipts, and register with the Federal

Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to

determine their eligibility for federal

reimbursement.  Individuals can register
