SCLTR On Sandy Recovery: "Steady Progress" Made In Crisfield

Posted: Updated:

CRISFIELD, Md. - Crisfield city leaders still face the realities of rebuilding their community nearly nine months after Superstorm Sandy.

With a booth at the Tawes Crab and Clam Bake, members of Somerset County Long-Term Recovery committee say they've already helped out more than a third of county residents struggling from last October's storm. Additionally, 58 new locals have applied for aid through the committee since May 1st.

Workers say getting the work done really comes from the help of the entire community.

"It's an amazing feeling to see how everyone is able to come regardless of religion, race or creed and just work together to rebuild lives," said LaTasha Wallace, a case manager for the Somerset Co. Long-Term Recovery committee.

Committee members say they have started seeing some of the $8.6 million in federal aid. We're told the entire rebuilding process will take at least two more years to finish.
