Now, Anne Arundel County Executive Steuart Pittman is stepping in.

He’s asking Gov. Larry Hogan to declare a State of Emergency to help homeowners and businesses get the funds they need to make repairs. Pittman said nearly $4 million was lost in business revenue.

The Governors’ Office did respond to the request in a tweet, saying while FEMA’s decision is disappointing, the Maryland Emergency Management Agency will meet with both Anne Arundel County and Annapolis to discuss other options.
