Virginia to Get $3M from FEMA for 2010 Storm Costs

March 17, 2011

Virginia is getting another $3 million from the Federal Emergency Management Agency to help pay cleanup costs stemming from a severe snowstorm last year.

The federal agency announced its approval of the grant Wednesday. The grant will pay 75 percent of the cost of removing snow from county-maintained roads and other cleanup activities in Fairfax County.

Some parts of northern and northwestern Virginia got more than 3 feet of snow in early February 2010, then an additional 5 to 15 inches days later.
