CHEEKTOWAGA, N.Y. (AP) - Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand will be in western New York to tour areas hit by historic snowfall last week and now bracing for floods.

She’ll meet with Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz at the Emergency Operations Center Cheektowaga Monday morning to discuss extensive damage to the area and resources needed from the federal government for recovery.

Then she’ll head to Zittel Family Farm in Eden, a major regional producer, to discuss agricultural damage.

Gillibrand has requested swift action from the Federal Emergency Management Agency and U.S. Department of Agriculture in response to aid requests for the region.
