(WHAM) - More Emergency Response Mobile Command Centers from New York state are being sent out to flooding sites in Monroe, Orleans and Wayne Counties.

Workers from the DEC, DHS and DFS will help home and property owners as needed with permits and erosion, says Governor Andrew Cuomo.

This is part of the coordinated Lake Ontario Rapid Response Team sent to the region after the governor visited areas along the shoreline in Monroe County earlier this month.

Certain types of repair and stabilization work can be authorized by DEC staff in these Mobile Command Centers. In certain cases, the DEC will provide permits on-site or expedite further review and field visits necessary to issue permits.

Approximately 100 permit applications have been filed in Monroe, Orleans and Wayne Counties. Of those, 26 individual or general permits have been approved. The rest are under review.
