O'Malley To Appeal Denial Of FEMA Assistance

Posted: Updated:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Maryland officials say they will appeal the Federal Emergency Management Agency's denial of a request for individual assistance for residents of the lower Eastern Shore in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy.
    
Ken Mallette, the director of the Maryland Emergency Management Agency, announced plans to appeal the decision on Tuesday.
    
FEMA notified Gov. Martin O'Malley on Monday of the decision to deny the individual assistance declaration.
    
Maryland has 30 days to file the appeal. The state is urging homeowners, renters and business owners who suffered damages not covered under existing insurance policies to report the damages to county emergency managers in Dorchester, Somerset and Worcester counties.
    
FEMA has approved federal funding for state and local governments and certain nonprofits. The additional assistance sought by the state would support families and individuals.
