SOMERSET CO, Md. - As Somerset County continues to rebuild after Sandy, WMDT has gotten word that some residents are waiting for federal assistance before they start making repairs.

FEMA reminds those who have been effected by the storm to start the clean up process now, especially if there is any risk that mold or mildew will form from the flood waters.  As people clean up, the agency says to closely document the original damage with pictures, and to keep receipts for any repairs done in the case that federal aid does become available to individuals.
