Additionally, 30 submerged targets have been identified in the Houma Navigation Canal. Fifteen of those targets in the Houma Navigation Canal have been cleared or removed. The U.S. Coast Guard continues to coordinate operations with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to identify and remove waterway obstructions.

The Coast Guard also continues to receive and investigate all reports made to the National Response Center (NRC).

Coast Guard crews are working to identify and prioritize threats to the environment and navigable waterways through overflights and surface inspections of areas impacted by the storm.

Coast Guard Sector New Orleans oversees 1,082 total aids to navigation in their area of responsibility. Of the 1,082 aids, 384 have been identified as damaged or are offline to date as a result of Hurricane Ida. Aids to navigation teams have restored or have made temporary corrections to 277 of those aids, which is 72% of those identified.

The Coast Guard is working closely with the State of Louisiana, Environmental Protection Agency, and Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality, to respond to reports of pollution.

To date, the Coast Guard has assessed 2,259 out of 2,464 reports of pollution. Of the reports, there are:

  • 1,217 reports that have been closed or transferred to appropriate jurisdictions,
  • 326 reports where the reports were unverified as there was no remaining evidence of pollution on-site,
  • 602 reports where the Coast Guard is actively supervising the mitigation efforts that are being carried out by responsible parties,
  • 23 reports are under investigation by the Coast Guard.

These numbers will change as the environmental response teams continue to assess and reprioritize targets. Anyone who sees pollution is encouraged to contact the NRC at 1-800-424-8802.

Those who have uncompensated removal costs or damages resulting from an oil spill to the navigable waters or the threat of an oil spill to the navigable waters may be entitled to compensation from the Oil Spill Liability Trust Fund. Please contact 1-800-280-7118 to see if you are eligible for a claim. 

Port conditions change based on weather forecasts, and current port conditions can be viewed on the following Coast Guard homeport webpages:

(TEXAS) JUST IN: Hurricane #Nicholas Report: Made landfall around 12:30am CDT Tuesday morning bringing heavy rain and risk of flash flooding and continues east according to the National Hurricane Center (NHC) #AceNewsDesk

#AceNewsReport – Sept.14: President Joe Biden declared an emergency in Louisiana and ordered federal assistance to the state…..

#AceWeatherDesk says that Hurricane #Nicholas has brought heavy rain to Texas and Louisiana it strengthened from a tropical storm late on Monday, before reaching land at 00:30 (05:30 GMT)…….More than 280,000 power outages have already been reported in Texas, according to PowerOutage.us.

Nicholas is carrying maximum sustained winds of 75 miles (120 km) per hour

It comes just weeks after Hurricane Ida – the fifth strongest to ever hit the US mainland – killed dozens and left more than a million Louisiana residents without power. 

Nicholas is carrying maximum sustained winds of 75mph (120km/h), weather officials said, and is expected to hit the Houston area with up to 18 inches of rain.

The US National Hurricane Centre warned that “life-threatening flash flooding impacts, especially in highly urbanised metropolitan areas, are possible”, and the National Weather Service called it a “life-threatening situation”.

“We want to make sure that no one is caught off guard by this storm,” Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards told a news conference.

He warned that drainage systems still clogged from Ida could trigger flash floods.

More than 119,000 homes and businesses remain without power in Louisiana due to Ida, he added.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott declared states of emergency in 17 counties and three cities.

Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner warned of flooding and urged the city’s roughly 2.3 million residents to stay off streets and motorways.

“Take things seriously and prepare,” Mr Turner said at a news conference. “This is primarily a rain event and we don’t know how much rain we will be getting.”

Dozens of schools across the two states have been closed, and hundreds of flights have been cancelled or delayed at airports in the Texas cities of Corpus Christi and Houston.

Hurricane Nicholas made landfall around 12:30 a.m. CDT Tuesday morning on the eastern part of Matagorda Peninsula, about 10 miles west-southwest of Sargent Beach, Texas, according to the National Hurricane Center (NHC).

“The storm continues to move north-northeast,” said AccuWeather Meteorologist Thomas Geiger. Rapid water rises are possible where the heaviest rain occurs across Texas and Louisiana, and strong wind gusts will occur with some damage possible, mainly to trees and any unprotected weak or temporary structures. Flooding has already been reported in Freeport, Texas, while storm surge has been building on Surfside Beach, Texas.

On Monday, United States President Joe Biden declared an emergency in Louisiana and ordered Federal assistance due to Hurricane Nicholas, according to the White House. In August, Hurricane Ida caused extensive damage to parts of the state as it made landfall. Heavy rainfall and storm surge caused widespread flooding across Louisiana, and rain from Nicholas can easily renew the flooding this week. The President authorized coordination of all disaster relief efforts to alleviate hardship and suffering due to the emergency.

Already over 164,200 are experiencing power outages, according to poweroutage.us, across Texas and Louisiana as Hurricane Nicholas threatens to make landfall early on Tuesday morning, lashing the coast with heavy rain and high winds. 

Nicholas is expected to take a hard right turn toward Louisiana after landfall in Texas, crossing the state from west to east as a tropical rainstorm. While AccuWeather forecasters aren’t expecting extreme winds to occur across most of Louisiana, the storm is forecast to slow down and drench the state with several inches of rain.

(LOUISIANA) LATEST: Hurricane #Ida reduces to tropical depression leaving Grand Isle ‘uninhabitable’ parish leader says #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Sept.01: The fury of Hurricane Ida has left the barrier island community of Grand Isle “uninhabitable,” a Louisiana parish leader said Tuesday….

#AceDailyNews says that Grand Isle’s police chief has called #Ida the most severe hurricane he had ever experienced as RESCUE EFFORTS CONTINUE IN LOUISIANA AFTER IDA WEAKENS TO TROPICAL DEPRESSION

6 hours ago

Fox News Flash top headlines for August 31

A search-and-rescue caravan traveling to the Jefferson Parishcommunity was able to arrive by road but 10 to 12 levee breaks on the Gulf of Mexico side of the island left 100% of homes and other structures damaged, with nearly 40% of them totally destroyed or nearly destroyed, parish President Cynthia Lee Sheng told reporters at a news conference.

In addition, the island – located about 111 miles south of New Orleans — was covered with about three feet of sand, Sheng said.

Grand Isle police Chief Scooter Resweber said he and other officers waited out the hurricane inside the town’s police station, according to The Associated Press.

“I had all the police officers move into the building for safety – and then all hell broke loose,” Resweber told the AP.

“Roofs started to come apart. We could see buildings flying into pieces across the street from us. It’s something that you just don’t want to ever see again.”

“Roofs started to come apart. We could see buildings flying into pieces across the street from us. It’s something that you just don’t want to ever see again.”— Chief Scooter Resweber, Grand Isle, Louisiana, police

Even the police station was threatened, he said.

“When the roof started to come apart and the building trembled, we all got scared,” he said. “We’re grown men but you do have fear in you, no matter what job you’re in, and we felt it.”

The chief called it the most severe hurricane he had ever experienced.

“I’ve ridden out other hurricanes – Hurricane Isaac, Katrina, Gustav, Ike – and this is no comparison whatsoever,” he said. “This is the worst. … It’s just amazing that no one (here) was killed or even seriously injured.”

Elsewhere in Jefferson Parish, which lies along the Gulf coast in the New Orleans area, the town of Lafitte had numerous homes flooded with water, but crews were able to rescue 15 people, Sheng said, according to WWL-TV of New Orleans.

Sheng advised anyone who had left the area to not yet return, given the extensive damage.

“These are not conditions to be living in,” Sheng said, according to WWL.

She said drinking water and ice distribution sites were being set up for those residents who stayed in their homes.

Trash pickup would not resume until Monday, largely because of road and traffic-signal conditions, she told reporters.

Widespread destruction

Also Tuesday, Rob Krieger of FOX 8 New Orleans toured Grand Isle and posted video on Facebook that shows the widespread destruction.

“There are zero services on the island right now,” he wrote, “power, water, and cell service are down.”

Krieger also posted video from Slidell, St. Tammany Parish, located on the northeast shore of Lake Pontchartrain, about 32 miles northeast of New Orleans.

The video included a young man ferrying neighbors around with his boat.

“Really great guy doing exactly what you’d expect out of a true Louisianan,” Krieger wrote in his post.

Hurricane Ida struck land Sunday, with winds reaching higher than 170 miles per hour, the AP reported. The total destruction to affected areas was still being assessed Tuesday.

Before the hurricane hit, Sheng had advised Jefferson Parish residents to “leave immediately,” warning that the hurricane was “unsurvivable.”

(LOUISIANA) Hurricane #Ida Report: Massive evacuation underway as coast braces for a storm that is potentially going to of historic proportions according to local media #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Aug.29: As Hurricane Ida barrelled towards the Louisiana coast, residents braced for a storm of potentially historic proportions due to arrive on the 16th anniversary of Katrina, the brutal hurricane that claimed more than 1,800 lives on America’s Gulf coast.

#AceWeatherDesk says Louisiana Gov. Has said the Hurricane #Ida Could be One of the Strongest to Hit State Since 1850s & Due to Arrive on the 16th Anniversary of Katrina …..as National Weather Service officials announced on Saturday night that Ida continued to strengthen in the Gulf of Mexico and was set to become a category 3 hurricane overnight, before making landfall on Sunday afternoon as a potential category 4 hurricane with sustained winds of 130mph (210 km/h), life-threatening storm surges and heavy rain.

State officials warned that Ida was likely to become one of the worst hurricanes in the history of Louisiana, a region known for torrid weather events.

“This will be one of the strongest hurricanes to hit anywhere in Louisiana since at least the 1850s,” said Louisiana governor John Bel Edwards at a press conference on Saturday. “We can also tell you your window of time is closing. It is rapidly closing.”

Tens of thousands of residents in coastal communities in south-east Louisiana were under mandatory evacuation orders. In New Orleans, the city placed those living outside the levee protection system under mandatory evacuation and urged all others to leave voluntarily. There was gridlock on the main highway leaving the city and vast queues at the Louis Armstrong international airport, as officials announced all flights would be cancelled on Sunday.

It was 29 August 2005 when New Orleans and other communities in the region were decimated by Katrina and the subsequent government failures in response. Hundreds of thousands of homes were lost after the city’s levee system failed, leading to catastrophic flooding. The city took years to recover.

On Saturday, Edwards pointed to billions of dollars in federal government investment in the city’s levees to argue the city was better prepared over a decade later.

As Louisiana Residents Flee Region Ahead Of Hurricane Ida, New Yorkers Head South To Help

August 28, 2021 at 11:46 pm

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — As Hurricane Ida gets closer to making landfall in Louisiana, some New Yorkers have mobilized to help.

As Hurricane Ida barrels towards the Gulf Coast, residents are fleeing the region, but there are some New Yorkers who have chosen to head towards the danger.READ MORE: Bus Transporting New York State Prisoners Catches Fire In Dutchess County

“There’s a sense of anxiety,” said Jose Dominguez, chief volunteer services officer for the American Red Cross in Greater New York. “The traffic build-up, obviously, is there … People are preparing. They are taking the message, a voluntary evacuation, seriously and they’re stocking up, so you see some empty shelves.”

Dominguez oversees the volunteer department for the American Red Cross in Greater New York. He and about a dozen others from our area arrived in Louisiana over the last few days.

They, along with other volunteers from across the country, are preparing for Ida.

“We have about 16 shelters that are on standby, ready to be filled,” Dominguez told CBS2’s Kiran Dhillon. “We are setting up the cots. We’re putting blankets on those cots. We have comfort kits, which include hygiene items … We have about 68,000 ready-to-eat meals that are available for anybody who comes to our shelters.”

CEO Mary Barneby heads up the New York region of the Red Cross.

She anticipates that in the days to come, even more volunteers will be deployed.

“Once everything kind of settles in and the storm has passed, that’s when a lot of the work really begins because people then really do need a helping hand. They need resources. They need agencies to work together to get them what they need to get back on their feet,” Barneby said.READ MORE: 2 Pedestrians Struck By Hit-And-Run Driver In The Bronx, 1 Killed

The Red Cross isn’t the only local group galvanizing efforts.

The New Jersey Office of Emergency Management tweeted Saturday that New Jersey Task Force 1 has been activated as part of the National Urban Search and Rescue Response System to deploy to assist with the rescue and recovery efforts resulting from Hurricane Ida.

However, high winds and downpours were reported to be causing more flooding as Grace travelled north of Mexico City. 

Residents of the coastal town of Tecolutla, in Veracruz state, said the hurricane had been devastating. 

“You could just hear the thunder of the falling trees, it sounded very nasty, very horrible,” Laura Jacinto said, adding: ” I was very scared, I was very scared last night.”

Another resident, Adolfo Lopez, said: “The roof… everything is gone, it took everything with it.”

(NEW ENGLAND) #Henri Report: Predictions that it will come dangerously close to New England as a hurricane Accu Weather forecasters are saying #AceWeatherDesk report

#AceWeatherReport – Aug.22: With a track expected to bring the potential hurricane along the coast of the Northeast, Henri will incite dangerous beach risks throughout the weekend….

#AceWeatherDesk says AccuWeather forecasters were growing more concerned Thursday that Henri, which was on the cusp of hurricane status and is expected to intensify in the coming days, will move close enough to stir more than just seas along the East Coast this weekend.

Updated Aug. 20, 2021 7:38 AM BST:

As of 11 p.m. on Thursday, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) said that Henri (pronounced: ahn-REE) was a strong tropical storm with sustained winds of 65 mph — just 10 mph shy of hurricane force. The center of the storm was located 415 miles south-southeast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, and 800 miles south of Nantucket, Massachusetts. It was moving west-northwestward at 8 mph.

Through the end of the week, Henri will continue to push away from Bermuda and draw nearer to the Carolina coastline and over the bath-warm waters of the Gulf Stream. In doing so, the system will have the opportunity to gain wind intensity and become a hurricane.

“A cold front approaching the eastern U.S. will be able to steer Henri, allowing its forward movement to turn more northerly later this week,” said AccuWeather Hurricane Expert Dan Kottlowski.

This timing should keep Henri from making landfall along the Southeast Atlantic coast. Even still, beaches from Savannah, Georgia, to Jones Beach, New York, can expect some indirect impacts from the storm.

Beachgoers trying to soak up the last bit of summer warmth with a trip to the beaches should use caution when entering the water. The final weekends of August are big with vacationers who visit places like North Carolina’s Outer Banks, the Jersey Shore, Montauk, New York, and Nantucket and Cape Cod in New England.

Water temperatures were close to the peak for the year and were inviting in all of those places. As of Thursday, the ocean temperatures off the Outer Banks were 84.2 degrees Fahrenheit. The water temperature at beaches in Atlantic City was 79.0 F, 74.3 F in the waters off Montauk and 75.6 F near Nantucket. However, AccuWeather forecasters warn that dangers such as rough surf and strong rip currents will be a concern through Saturday in this zone.

A 50-year-old father and his 28-year-old son were killed in a rip current near the Oak Island Pear in North Carolina on Wednesday afternoon, according to WECT. Bystanders pulled the father from the water, but emergency responders were unable to save him. A two-hour search ensued for his son, who was still missing, and his body was later recovered.

According to data from NOAA, more people have died as a result of rip currents on a yearly basis over the last decade than from lightning strikes or due to impacts from extreme cold combined.

Into the weekend, AccuWeather meteorologists will monitor several factors to determine Henri’s exact path, which will determine impacts beyond dangerous surf conditions.

At this time, AccuWeather meteorologists believe Henri will not make a northward turn until later on Friday. Should the northward turn wait until Friday night, Henri will be able to close in on the East Coast and possibly make a landfall in New England. In fact, forecasters are growing increasingly confident that a landfall will occur in southeastern New England later this weekend.

Whether Henri makes landfall in the United States or not, the combination of the front and Henri may displace some moisture to the north and west of Henri’s center later on Saturday. As that happens, heavy rain may pour down over portions of northern New Jersey, northeastern Pennsylvania, southern New York and Connecticut.

The heaviest rain is likely to stay closer to Henri’s exact track and will arrive on Sunday across parts of southeastern New England. Across the Massachusetts Cape and islands, 2-4 inches of rain is forecast, with an AccuWeather Local StormMax™ of 8 inches possible.

The rain could prove to be more than just a nuisance for vacationers, and that amount could result in flooding problems.

Residents in the Northeast and New England who will face another round of rain by the end of the weekend may still be cleaning up after tropical downpours unleashed by Tropical Rainstorm Fred. Since Fred unloaded several inches of rain, Henri’s second dose of heavy, tropical rainfall may trigger flash flooding in the region more easily.

This area will also be the most susceptible to damaging wind gusts from Henri. Widespread wind gusts of 40-60 mph may just swipe southeastern New England and blast areas stretching from eastern Long Island to the Massachusetts cape. The strongest wind gusts are most likely, however, to be over the water as long as Henri does not make landfall.

Winds of this magnitude will be capable of causing minor damage, as well as funneling water into bays and inlets and raising the water level along the coast.

Henri’s arrival to New England will coincide with a full moon on Sunday. This combination could bring higher tides and more widespread coastal flooding than during a different lunar phase.

There have been 32 tropical systems that have passed within 100 nautical miles of Nantucket Island, Massachusetts, since 1950, according to AccuWeather Senior Weather Editor and meteorologist Jesse Ferrell. The most recent was Elsa earlier this year, just before it lost its tropical storm status. 

Thirteen hurricanes have tracked within 100 nautical miles of Nantucket, Massachusetts, since 1950. (NOAA)

The most recent hurricane to pass closely offshore was Arthur in 2014, which caused power outages, flooding and winds up to 63 mph at Nantucket. In that same timeframe since 1950, 13 of the storms were hurricane strength as they moved near the area, according to National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) data.

The most memorable storm to impact Massachusetts in recent history was Hurricane Bob in 1991. Bob made landfalls in Rhode Island and Maine and caused $1 billion in damage in Massachusetts. Winds greater than 100 mph and severe coastal flooding blasted Massachusetts during Bob’s rampage. 

Further back in history, other famous hurricanes to affect New England include “The Great New England Hurricane” in 1938, which crashed ashore as a Category 3 storm on Long Island, and Hurricane Edna in 1954, which moved directly over Martha’s Vineyard. In 1954, Hurricane Carol set the scene for an iconic photo of Edgewood Yacht Club in Rhode Island surrounded by extreme storm surge.

Next week, Henri is forecast to shift northeastward and narrowly miss the southern tip of Nova Scotia. The south- and east-facing coasts of the province will be most susceptible not only to gusty winds but also to coastal flooding as Henri passes just to the south.

Heavy, tropical rainfall will expand farther inland across Nova Scotia, bringing with it the threat of flooding.

People that are planning a weekend trip to a destination to this portion of Atlantic Canada should continue to check the AccuWeather forecast so that they can plan accordingly.

(COCO BEACH, Fla.) #HurricaneDorian LASTEST: Category 3 but residents prepare for evacuation as the region fears a storm surge of about seven feet as they wait for ‘ eye of the storm ‘ to move away fr om the Bahamas after leaving at least 5- confirmed dead and 130,000 homes destroyed in its wake according to the International Red Cross #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – Sept.03: In Cocoa Beach, Florida, many residents have evacuated, as the region fears a storm surge of about seven feet. Cocoa Beach city manager James McKnight joins “CBS This Morning” to discuss final preparations for the storm, and how his team is responding to a 100-year-old resident who refuses to leave.

#Hurricane Dorian UN worried ‘for every person’ in eye of storm: This, plus Yemen, Brexit updates, in @UN News daily audio bulletin: https://t.co/C70w96V9GM http://twitter.com/UN_News_Centre/status/1168969409987137536 September 03, 2019 at 08:30PM:

This is Grand Bahama Island Full coverage of Hurricane Dorian: https://t.co/G7usfYM2vt https://t.co/yS6v85PM1M

Hurricane Dorian appears to have caused “unprecedented” devastation in the Bahamas, the country’s leader says; The storm, the second-strongest Atlantic hurricane on record, remains “extremely dangerous”, said Prime Minister Hubert Minnis: Some 13,000 houses are feared damaged or destroyed, according to the International Red Cross.

image1.jpeg

Pictures showed surging floodwaters, upturned cars and snapped trees.

Dorian is the most powerful storm to hit the Bahamas since records began and will later move “dangerously close” to the US east coast, according to forecasters: It hit the Bahamas as a category five hurricane but has now weakened to a category four with maximum sustained winds near 155ph (250 km/h), says the US National Hurricane Center (NHC) in its latest update.…………..Dorian will however remain “a powerful hurricane during the next couple of days”……………..The NHC said that only a slight deviation in the path of the storm could bring Dorian directly over Florida’s east coast, which is already expected to face life-threatening storm surges and dangerous winds over the next couple of days: The US states of Florida, Georgia, North and South Carolina have all declared states of emergency.

The storm is crawling over Grand Bahama, having earlier made landfall on the Abaco Islands, which are just to the east: Both chains are in the north of the Bahamas archipelago. Grand Bahama, with a population of about 50,000, is only 100km (60 miles) east of West Palm Beach in Florida.

Dorian is travelling west at just over 1mph (2km/h), the NHC said. It added that the hurricane would “continue to pound Grand Bahama Island” through much of Monday: The winds at the core of the storm are spinning so fast that the centre is collapsing on itself, stalling over the area and weakening the storm’s eye. This is making it expand and cause damage over a larger area, says BBC Weather: A “life-threatening storm surge” could raise water levels by as much as 23ft (7m) in parts of Grand Bahama island, said the NHC.

GraphicPresentational white space

On Monday morning, Prime Minister Hubert Minnis said reports from the Abaco Islands suggested the devastation was “unprecedented”. Low-lying island communities are believed to have been hit hard by flooding and ferocious winds: The Abacos are home to about 17,000 people. It is unclear how many ignored evacuation orders and pleas from officials to leave low-lying areas

The International Red Cross also said as many as 13,000 houses could have been destroyed: “There might no longer be any clean water readily available on Abaco because of storm surges flooding wells,” spokesman Matthew Cochrane told the BBC: He said that aid workers were expecting “significant humanitarian needs” in the Bahamas once the storm passes.

The UK Department for International Development said it was sending three humanitarian experts to the Bahamas: One video as the storm hit the Abacos carried a desperate plea for help: Severe flooding is being reported in parts of Grand Bahama, and local media report that the international airport is under water.

UNITED STATES: ‘ HURRICANE GONZALO SIXTH OF 2014 BATTERS ITS WAY TO BERMUDA ‘

#AceWorldNews – UNITED STATES – October 15 – Gonzalo has become the major hurricane in the Atlantic Ocean and is expected to gain force, the Miami-based National Hurricane Centre said (RT) reported.

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico, Oct 14 (Reuters) – Hurricane Gonzalo strengthened to become a major Category 3 hurricane on Tuesday as it moved away from the northern Caribbean and headed toward Bermuda, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said.

The center of Gonzalo was moving northwest, away from the British and U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico, prompting storm alerts for those areas to be lifted.

Most forecasts showed Gonzalo posing no threat to the mainland United States and moving further north into the Atlantic.

It could hit Bermuda late on Friday, and the island was put under a hurricane watch.

Gonzalo is the sixth hurricane of the 2014 Atlantic hurricane season, which runs through the end of November. Forecasters in August predicted lower-than-usual activity for the season, with seven to 12 named storms and no more than two reaching major hurricane status.

Gonzalo was about 705 miles (1,135 km) south of Bermuda late on Tuesday and packed sustained winds reaching 125 miles per hour (205 km per hour), the center said.

A major hurricane is considered to be Category 3 or above with winds hitting at least 111 mph (178 kph).

“Gonzalo has a good chance of becoming the Atlantic’s first Category 4 hurricane since Oct. 2, 2011,” when Hurricane Ophelia’s winds reached 140 mph (225 kph), according to Jeff Masters, a hurricane expert with private forecaster Weather Underground.

Gonzalo would likely begin weakening by late on Thursday, but could still reach Bermuda “anywhere between a Category 1 and Category 3 storm”, he wrote in a blog post.

Forecast models showed it passing within 30 to 80 miles (48 to 129 km) of the island on Friday.

The Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico experienced only light to moderate rain and wind gusts on Tuesday, and no significant damage or loss of power was reported.

FEMA: ‘ Looking to Recoup Aid Payments of $5.8 Million From Hurricane Victims in Super-Storm Sandy ‘

#AceWorldNews – UNITED STATES (New York) – September 11 – After Super-storm Sandy hit the East Coast nearly two years ago, the federal government quickly sent out $1.4 billion in emergency disaster aid to the hurricane’s victims.

Now, thousands of people might have to pay back their share.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency is scrutinizing about 4,500 households that it suspects received improper payments after the storm, according to program officials and data obtained by The Associated Press through a public records request.

As of early September, FEMA had asked around 850 of those households to return a collective $5.8 million. The other cases were still under review.

FEMA’s campaign to recover overpayments, called “recoupment” in agency lingo, typically involves inadvertent violations of eligibility rules, bureaucratic mistakes or missing documentation, rather than outright fraud.

Many people asked to return money were deemed ineligible because their damaged properties were vacation houses or rental properties, not their primary residences. Others had double dipped into the aid pool, with more than one household member getting payments. Some received FEMA money for things later covered by insurance.

As of July 30, the average demanded refund was $6,987, a sum that could be difficult for many, given the modest annual incomes of most aid applicants. Roughly half of the households under scrutiny reported an annual gross income of $30,000 or less.

The larger pool of cases still under review as of that date involved $53 million in aid payments – or about 3.7 percent of the total given out by FEMA through its individuals and households program – though any potential refunds would likely involve only a portion of that money.

New Jersey: “Christie Under Investigation for Misuse of Hurricane Sandy Funds”

#AceWorldNews says according to “HuffPost Hill” – CHRISTIE UNDER INVESTIGATION FOR MISUSE OF SANDY FUNDS – When it rains… Luke Johnson: “New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) is facing a federal investigation into whether the governor used Hurricane Sandy relief money to produce tourism ads starring himself and his family, Rep. Frank Pallone (D-N.J.) told CNN Sunday. The New Jersey lawmaker said the inspector general for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development conducted a preliminary investigation, and concluded that a full investigation is warranted. The investigation comes as the New Jersey governor is facing a separate federal probe into revelations that his top aides engineered the temporary shut-down of access lanes to the George Washington Bridge as political retribution. Pallone wrote a letter to the inspector general of the Department of Housing and Urban Development in August, asking why a firm with a more expensive pitch won the project to make a New Jersey tourism campaign with Hurricane Sandy relief funds. The winning firm’s bid was $4.7 million, while a comparable firm cost $2.5 million. The more expensive idea included the Christie’s, while the cheaper pitch did not.” [HuffPost]
