FEMA disaster recovery representatives met with Long Beach officials this past Friday to tour some of the areas damaged by Hurricane Irene last August. Some of you might remember Hurricane Irene as that uninvited guest which destroyed our playground, tripped Al Roker, uplifted our lifeguard shack and flooded our streets.
So here we are several months after the storm, FEMA are evaluating the damage which, um….. Maybe they should have been here several months ago? Anyways, hopefully the city will be reimbursed for most of the repair costs. MO$T of the REPAIR CO$T$.
