The Federal Emergency Management Agency has rejected New York's request for $6 million in disaster aid to help cover cleanup costs related to two March rain storms on Long Island.

Gov. David Paterson had asked the state to treat the multiple storms as a single disaster, but that request was denied.

This March was one of the wettest on record for some parts of New York.
