Cuomo Returning To Lakeside Communities Impacted By Flooding
GREECE, N.Y. (AP) — Gov. Andrew Cuomo is returning to the Rochester area to visit areas along the Lake Ontario shoreline impacted by recent flooding.
The Democrat is scheduled to be at a park in the Monroe County town of Greece late Tuesday morning before heading east to a marina in Sodus Point in neighboring Wayne County.
Both counties have seen some of the worst damage from flooding that began earlier this spring during heavy rains. Some lakeside residents and local officials have blamed the flooding on the international board that governs outflows from Lake Ontario into the St. Lawrence River.
Cuomo was last in the Rochester area in late May, when he announced that $7 million in state funding would be available to homeowners impacted by flooding.
