FEMA aid approved for flooded out Riverhead residents

Officials say federal aid is on the way for flooded out residents in Riverhead.

Many Horton Avenue homes were destroyed by flooding in March last year when a nor'easter swept through the area.

Yesterday, FEMA aid was approved for the neighborhood.

Nearly $3 million will be used to compensate residents who lost their homes.

The land will be converted into an artificial wetland.
