Christie announces more FEMA money

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie says more FEMA funding is on its way to help buy out homes impacted by Superstorm Sandy.

On Wednesday, Christie announced an $11.9 million dollar FEMA grant.

It will help with a buyout program targeting 1,000 properties in tidal areas affected by Sandy.

Three hundred properties that have repeatedly flooded are also targeted in the grant.

FEMA has already awarded nearly $29.5 million in grant money after Sandy.
