President Joe Biden has added New York to the list of states he has approved an emergency declaration for, in addition to his approval of Connecticut earlier Sunday. 

This declaration would help “the counties of Albany, Bronx, Broome, Chenango, Columbia, Delaware, Dutchess, Greene, Kings, Montgomery, Nassau, New York, Orange, Otsego, Putnam, Queens, Rensselaer, Richmond, Rockland, Saratoga, Schenectady, Schoharie, Suffolk, Sullivan, and Westchester,” the declaration said.

Earlier this weekend: Biden made the same declaration for Rhode Island on Saturday.

Biden is scheduled to speak at 4 p.m. to update the country on how his administration is responding to the tropical storm.
