As the fourth anniversary of the devastating storms Irene and Lee approaches, the Cuomo Administration says it’s more ready than ever for hurricanes, floods, and other adverse weather events.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is blasting lawmakers on Capital Hill for failing to help victims of Superstorm Sandy. 

The devastation that struck New York City and other regions of the northeast after superstorm Sandy should not have come as a surprise, according to a series of reports.

Governor Cuomo says Hurricane Sandy caused more damage than Hurricane Katrina, and is now asking for $41 billion from the federal government. Cuomo says New York’s congressional delegation has promised the help.


Voters in the new 27th congressional district will be represented by Chris Collins in January.  Collins, a Republican, defeated incumbent Democrat Kathy Hochul in last week's elections.  That's just one of our topics as WBFO's Mark Scott sits down with Suburban Editor Bruce Andriatch in this week's Press Pass.
