MAYOR HANNEMANN LAUDS FEDERAL ASSISTANCE FOR FLOOD VICTIMS
Mayor Mufi Hannemann today said he is pleased with the presidential disaster declaration that makes federal funding available for those individuals who were adversely affected by last month’s rain storms and flooding on Oahu.
“The federal aid will assist our residents in recovering from the storm and flood damage,” said Hannemann. “I saw first hand some of the devastation, and I’m grateful the President stepped up to the plate to help our local residents.”
Mayor Hannemann said
“I want to thank the city and state teams that helped with the assessment in the wake of the floods,” said Hannemann “Their hard work helped us to secure the federal assistance that our people need and deserve.”
The Federal Emergency Management Agency said additional funds may become available at a later date if warranted.
