Ida toppled trees into the Peckman near Bloomfield Avenue, and flooded homes along the Peckman and elsewhere in town.

Representatives of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will be in the Verona Community Center gym on Monday, September 27, from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. to answer residents’ questions about the damage done by Hurricane Ida. The event is open to Verona, Cedar Grove and Essex Fells residents.

FEMA’s Disaster Survivor Assistance teams travel to areas affected by disasters and provide accessible, in-person case-specific information and referrals regarding the hurricane’s impact. They will answer questions and assist residents with the disaster relief application process.

FEMA’s initial Major Disaster Declaration for New Jersey included only Bergen, Gloucester, Hunterdon, Middlesex, Passaic, and Somerset. After outreach by New Jersey officials, FEMA added Essex, Hudson, Mercer and Union counties. As a result, Verona residents can  apply for the federal government’s help with storm costs. FEMA’s disaster assistance page is here.
