In the wake of the destruction wrought by Hurricane Harvey, Gov. Cuomo announced last week that New York State has deployed emergency personnel and equipment to help mitigate damage and provide aid in the recovery effort.

Gov. Cuomo said:

“As our neighbors in the south continue to grapple with the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, I am deploying additional personnel and equipment to assist in continued search and rescue operations. New Yorkers are no strangers to the destruction that can come at the hands of Mother Nature, and we are prepared to continue to support these efforts in any way we can.”
