Governor Andrew Cuomo visited an American Red Cross bulk distribution site late Sunday afternoon in the village of Herkimer and praised Red Cross volunteers for their “extraordinary” work in the aftermath of the flooding that left hundreds of families homeless throughout Herkimer, Oneida, Madison and Montgomery counties.

Earlier Sunday, Gov. Cuomo deployed the Department of Financial Services’ (DFS) Mobile Command Center to Herkimer County to help homeowners and businesses affected by the recent heavy rains and devastating flood damage in the Mohawk Valley.

Sunday was the third day that the Red Cross had opened bulk distribution sites throughout the affected counties.

In addition to the site in Herkimer, the Red Cross also opened a site Sunday in the city of Oneida in Madison County.
