Md. Briefings On Irene Disaster Aid Begin

WILLIAMSPORT, Md. (AP) — Maryland and federal emergency management officials have begun a series of briefings for Hurricane Irene disaster aid applicants.

The first such meeting was held Friday morning in Williamsport. Others are scheduled Wednesday in Reisterstown and Oct. 17 in Marriottsville.

The meetings are for state and local governments and certain nonprofit groups, but not for households and individuals.

State and federal emergency management officials will help participants apply for federal disaster assistance to supplement state and local recovery efforts in areas affected by the storm from Aug. 24 to Sept. 5. The emergency declaration covers all of Maryland except Garrett County.

The storm’s worst effects in Maryland were in the central and southern parts of the state. Three deaths in Maryland were blamed on the hurricane.
