We heard today from many PEF members in regions 9, 10, 11 and 12 who have been impacted by the flooding and other damage caused by the remnants of Tropical Storm Ida.  New York has declared a state of emergency in the following counties: Bronx, Dutchess, Kings, Nassau, New York, Orange, Putnam, Queens, Richmond, Rockland, Suffolk, Sullivan, Ulster and Westchester.
