Were You or Someone You Know Affected By Flooding in Oneida/Herkimer County?
If you or someone you know were affected by flooding in either Oneida or Herkimer County and are in need of emergency services or disaster recovery, you have options.
Here are three ways you can report your needs and be connected with helpful services. 
 
1. Call 2-1-1 (1-844-DIAL-211)
