HUDSON VALLEY -- Two local counties are now eligible for FEMA's Individual Assistance program. Anyone who suffered damage as a result of Sandy in either Sullivan or Ulster county can apply over the phone or online.
FEMA is also looking set up a Disaster Recovery Center for both counties. In addition, there may be a Public Assistance program declaration since the areas met the minimum damage requirements.
It could take another week to get this declaration.
