Indy mayor wants federal funds for storm costsJanuary 11, 2014
By The Associated Press
INDIANAPOLIS — The mayor of the state’s largest city wants federal funds to help cover the costs of this week’s winter storm.
Indianapolis’ Greg Ballard signed a formal request Friday for federal disaster assistance after Sunday’s snowfall of 11.4 inches followed by 34 consecutive hours of sub-zero temperatures cost the city millions of dollars.
The commissioners of Hamilton County directly north of Indianapolis have made a similar request.
The Indiana Department of Homeland Security asked state residents Friday to help clear snow and debris from storm drains to help prevent localized flooding from the melting snow.
The National Weather Service has issued warnings for lowland flooding along some Indiana rivers and streams but has said it does not expect significant flooding like that experienced by some areas of the state last month.
