The New Brunswick government has announced a disaster assistance package for people who had homes and property damaged by the huge storm last Sept. 30.
Up to 215 millimetres of rain fell on parts of south and northeast New Brunswick during the storm, causing flash floods which washed out roads and culverts, and damaged homes and yards.
More than 70 communities were affected, according to the province.
The Disaster Financial Assistance Program was announced to help with the cost of replacing necessities and making essential repairs.
That's only for people not covered by insurance.
People who have already registered for eligibility will receive an application package in the mail, and those who have not registered, can do so at 1-888-298-8555.
The deadline to submit is April 29.
