The Office of Emergency Management is doing its part to help New Yorkers affected by Ida
New York City has opened a service center in every borough to help New Yorkers get through the damage left behind from the storm.
The OEM has tables set up for the Small Business Administration, the Department of Buildings, Department of Aging, Housing Preservation and Development, Department of Social Services and more, but not many people have stopped to check in at the location at MS 194 in the Bronx.
News 12 is told the agencies are there to provide information about resources to homeowners and advise tenants how to proceed with getting inspections, filing a construction request or enrolling cash assistance.
Some people showed up thinking there would be physical resources like pumps they could borrow to get the water out of their homes, but those people walked out empty-handed.
The center is open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. through Monday.
News 12 is told the hours could expand based on demand.
