Hochul joins Queens lawmakers to offer assistance to Flushing residents impacted by Hurricane Ida


Congresswoman Grace Meng and Gov. Kathy Hochul visited residents in Flushing on Tuesday, Sept. 7, to offer their assistance in recovery efforts following the aftermath of last week’s record rainfall and flooding that devastated parts of the borough.

Meng and Hochul were joined by other local elected officials to talk with constituents in the area of 56th Avenue and Kissena Boulevard, who have suffered losses from the remnants of Hurricane Ida that slammed the tri-state area on Sept. 1, resulting in 13 deaths, including at least 10 victims from Queens.
