Federal emergency officials say $6 million from Washington has been paid on 1,020 claims made in Rhode Island related to Superstorm Sandy.
The Providence Journal reports that it’s unclear how many more claims remain to be processed in the state and how much more disaster relief is being sought.
At the end of November, one month after the storm hit the Northeast, the Federal Emergency Management Agency projected $14 million in damage to public infrastructure. At the time, FEMA reported receiving 53 claim applications from municipalities and public-service agencies.
Congress approved $9.7 billion in Sandy-related aid last week. The House is scheduled next week to address another $51 billion for states affected by the Oct. 29 storm.
It’s not known how much would go to Rhode Island.
