The New York Department of Financial Services is issuing more mobile command units to the Lake Ontario region to provide insurance help.

"As water levels continue to rise, we remain vigilant and continue to take aggressive action to protect the people who live and work in the Lake Ontario region," Governor Cuomo said. "By deploying additional mobile command centers and resources, we will help residents with insurance claims and support the needs of the affected communities."

A state of emergency has been declared in several counties around Lake Ontario due to rising lake levels.

A hotline has been set up, available for insurance-related issues Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at 1-800-339-1759.
