Md. Helps Sandy Survivors With Housing

BALTIMORE (AP) — State agencies have been providing housing assistance to Eastern Shore residents affected by Superstorm Sandy while officials wait for a decision on a requested disaster declaration.

State housing officials are working with about 160 families, many in Crisfield, to find assistance.

The Crisfield Public Housing Authority has about 70 families in hotels and has begun repairs to 42 of the 140 units in the Somer’s Cove development that were damaged by a tidal surge.

Maryland officials requested a Presidential Disaster Declaration on Nov. 8.
