Oneida County is offering hotel vouchers to people who are displaced from their homes, after flooding from the Halloween storm left many without power, heat or water.

Anyone in need of shelter can get a voucher from the Oneida County Department of Social Services by visiting one of the local disaster assistance centers, including:

  • Whitesboro Fire Department, 171 Oriskany Blvd., Whitesboro
  • West Canada Creek Estates, 12275 State Route 28, Poland (Town of Deerfield)
  • Willowvale Fire Department, 3459 Oneida St., Chadwicks
  • The Community Foundation of Herkimer & Oneida Counties, 2608 Genesee St., Utica

All four of the centers will remain open from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. through Nov. 8. The Whitesboro site will also be open from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Nov. 12-14.

Flood victims can apply for part of the $500,000 the county has designated to home and business repairs at the centers or by calling 211 or the Community Foundation of Herkimer & Oneida Counties at 315-735-8212. Applications can also be submitted online at the Community Foundation website.

Municipalities seeking a portion of the funds for cleanup costs should contact the Oneida County Department of Public Works at 315-793-6213.

Phone charging stations are also accessible at the Whitesboro, Deerfield and Chadwicks centers and portable showers are now available at the corner of Main Street and Ablett Avenue in Whitesboro and at the West Canada Creek Estates, which also has portable bathrooms.
