New York officials say four more counties have been added to the federal disaster declaration, making residents eligible for possible aid for damage from Superstorm Sandy.
With Orange, Putnam, Sullivan and Ulster counties now covered by the declaration, individuals who were storm victims will be able to seek help from the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
New York City, Long Island and Rockland and Westchester counties, already covered by the declaration, are eligible for both individual and public assistance.
