Somerset County Long Term Recovery Center Opens To Aid Residents

Posted: Updated:

Crisfield, Md - Months after Superstorm Sandy hit the East Coast, some residents are still trying to get back on their feet.

"Oh my goodness during Superstorm sandy we were in our house and watching the tide come up and our house sits low and all of the sudden the water started coming in through the walls underneath the walls. Literally. And before we could get out it was about 8 inches deep and when we went back later it was 15 inches deep inside the house. So as of right now, we're the only residents in Crisfield that have actually raised our house So we've put a foundation under it, raised it, put a foundation under it, brought it back down," says resident Valerie Howard


They're finally getting the assistance they need with The Somerset County Long Term Recovery Center -- which aims to give residents advice and direction in things like filling out paperwork.
Organizers and volunteers say they will do everything they can to rebuild their beloved town

"Today is the grand opening of the long term recovery committee office. For months, a group of volunteers and government agencies have worked together to form a long term recovery committee and today we're officially opening our long term recovery office right here in downtown Crisfield," Says John Phoebus, chairman of the long term recovery committee.
