Governor Andrew Cuomo spoke at Herkimer County Community College on Wednesday morning, pledging government support for those affected by the flooding in the area.

He said that if the federal government would not come through with funding, the state would. He repeated those sentiments several times.

The area was struck with severe flooding after storms in late June in early July dumped more than 10 inches of rain.
