Suffolk tallies nor'easter damage in hope of aid

Suffolk officials are assessing storm damage to the county shoreline from November's nor'easter in the hope of obtaining federal disaster relief.

The cost of the storm's damages has already been estimated at more than $25 million.

"We are at the point now where our beachfront with one more storm could be washed away," says County Executive Steve Levy. "We'd lose the goose that lays the golden egg, so to speak, when it comes to our economy in the summer months."

The governor would have to put in a formal request to the federal government in order to receive disaster money.
