FEMA to cover damage from second ice storm

BANGOR — The Federal Emergency Management Agency will extend its coverage of ice storm damage in Maine to include the storm that hit the state last weekend, U.S. Rep. John Baldacci said Tuesday.

Individuals, business owners and municipal governments are now eligible for federal assistance for damage that occurred through Sunday, Baldacci said.

“It is important for Maine people to know that damage caused this past weekend by ice and snow will be covered. The power outages and property damage that occurred may compound problems and have a detrimental economic impact on parts of Maine,” he said.

FEMA had announced earlier that federal assistance was available to those who suffered damage from the more devastating ice storm that swept Maine on Jan. 8.
