EDISON - FEMA officials will be in the Garden State today to assess the damage associated with last week's blizzard.

Gov. Chris Christie signed a letter last week in Freehold requesting federal aid for 13 counties hit hardest in the storm that dropped nearly three feet of snow in those parts of the state.

Many towns across New Jersey depleted much of their budgeted funds for snow cleanup during the storm.

The governor said Friday that he hopes to move swiftly through the process of getting the damage assessment done and getting federal reimbursements to the municipalities and counties across the state.
