Superstorm has cost N.Y. $30B to date

ALBANY, N.Y. — Superstorm Sandy has run up at least a $30 billion bill in New York, and the state and city are making big requests for disaster aid from a federal government facing its own fiscal crisis.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Michael Bloomberg were meeting Monday for a briefing with Sens. Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand, as well as the rest of New York’s congressional delegation. A clear idea of how much New York will request in federal disaster aid is expected.

Bloomberg announced earlier Monday that Sandy caused $19 billion in losses in New York City, which is part of the $30 billion estimate Cuomo used.
