“The real harm, I mean certainly we’re feeling it as a town, but the harm is to homeowners who could have 50-100 thousand dollars in damage each so we appreciate the money from the Governor, but we want to see something on behalf of the homeowners,” said Greece town supervisor, Bill Reilich. 

Reilich says the town of Greece estimates around $300,000 in damage from the flooding so far.
