Three years after Tropical Storm Irene tore through New York,  one upstate county has completed restoration efforts.

Irene destroyed many Greene County communities - affecting several roads and bridges. Now county officials say all repair and rebuild projects as a result of the storm have been finished.

A telephone hotline has been set up for Albany residents impacted by Tuesday's flood. 

Mayor Kathy Sheehan announced that residents can call 2-1-1 for information about and referrals to assistance in the wake of the unprecedented storm. Working with United Way, the Red Cross, local government, businesses and nonprofit organizations, the Mayor says she's making sure that citizens have access to assistance with temporary housing, food, clothing, clean-up and more.

Let me lead with a question – Is the threat of environmental catastrophe ringing from every pulpit and ethical organization in the country? If not, why not?
