Missouri SEMA Asked To Help In New York Recovery

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (KMOX) – More help is on its way from Missouri to New York in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy.

Governor Nixon’s office says the State Emergency Management Agency has been requested to send a team to assist with volunteer management and donation collection.

Some team members left Sunday from St. Louis — others will depart on Monday.

Governor Nixon says SEMA’s reputation of helping with the Joplin tornado recovery, as well as Missouri flooding relief, caught New York’s attention.
