The article reports on the need of business owners in several communities in Westchester County for financial aid to recoup for the losses they sustained from the flood that hit the county. According to the owners, their insurance policy could not compensate them as it did not cover losses acquired from floods. Furthermore, government officials are already planning to establish a public charity for contributions to help those affected by the flood.
