Senator Julia Salazar - Emergency Response to Tropical Storm Ida/Respuesta de Emergencia a la Tormenta Tropical Ida


Senator Julia Salazar

Dear Neighbor,

    Yesterday, Mayor Bill DeBlasio visited our district, on Knickerbocker Avenue in Bushwick, which was flooded by a torrential downpour that flooded streets and homes all over the city of New York. While I was in Albany voting to pass urgent legislation, our staff joined the mayor, other local elected officials and community members. We were all informed that assistance is available for you, our constituents and neighbors in Brooklyn who have been impacted by this storm. The city is currently working with federal agencies on disaster declarations to bring more Relief Aid.

   Below is a list of resources to meet immediate concerns about Tropical Storm Ida:

First, for any Property Damage please use 311 Online, or call or text 311.
Contact the NYC Comptroller’s Office here to file a claim within 90 days of the incident.

Small Businesses:
