New York Governor Kathy Hochul is sending state insurance personnel to neighborhoods hit hard by Hurricane Ida remnants. It’s designed to help residents get their damaged property assessed and to help them fill out paperwork.

Hochul says she’s putting together a task force to do an after action report on what the state did well and can do better for the next storm, like evacuating citizens. This comes after people died in their flooded basement apartments because they were unable to escape.
