Queens senator moves to get FEMA aid to East Elmhurst residents who have yet to receive assistance after Hurricane Ida

State Senator Jessica Ramos met with Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer last week to follow up on Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) claims made by East Elmhurst residents impacted by Hurricane Ida.  

Last month, Hurricane Ida took the lives of about 10 people in Queens alone, and left many homes completely destroyed. Some residents who filed FEMA claims right after the storm are still awaiting support.
