Last Thursday, the Cuomo Administration released a 23-page report entitled “New York Responds,” which details its response to Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee.  Those storms struck one week apart in late August and early September 2011.

Administration officials used the first anniversary of the two storms to highlight the $574 million in state aid that has been distributed in affected communities. According to the report, $277 million has gone directly to homeowners, businesses and municipalities.
