Trenton, NJ – Governor Chris Christie today announced that President Obama has made a federal disaster declaration for Cumberland, Gloucester and Salem counties following the impact of severe storms and flooding from August 13, 2011 to August 15, 2011. The initial declaration provides Public Assistance in each of the three counties. Federal approval of individual assistance remains under review.
