More Than $2.4 Million in Federal Funding Approved for Superstorm Sandy Relief Efforts in WV

Posted: Updated:

More than $2.4 million in federal funds have been approved to help the West Virginia Division of Highways continue clearing debris from roads affected by Superstorm Sandy.

The funds include nearly $1.4 million for Tucker County.

"Hurricane Sandy wreaked havoc up and down the east coast and in West Virginia," said Senator Jay Rockefeller. "Heavy rains and snow closed schools and small businesses. And strong winds knocked down trees and power lines leaving many without power or heat. We must do what we can even now to help our communities fully recover. This funding will help make sure that fallen trees and road obstructions no longer stand in the way – and that more West Virginians are finally on the road to normalcy."

The funding comes from the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
