Va. Cities, Counties to Get Disaster Briefing

December 16, 2009

State and federal emergency officials will be on hand in Newport News to assist local governments and certain nonprofits that were slammed by a storm last month.

The Virginia Department of Emergency Management and the Federal Emergency Management Agency will sponsor the first of two briefings
Wednesday. The briefings are intended to explain eligibility issues and federal procurement standards to city and county governments, as well as some nonprofits.

The disaster assistance is available to the cities that include Virginia Beach, Newport News and Norfolk and five southeast Virginia counties.

They all reported flooding and other clean-up costs related to a nor'easter last month.

Thursday, a briefing is planned in Virginia Beach.
