Following last weeks devastating storm in Casino and surrounding districts, I wish to congratulate and thank the many workers and volunteers who contributed valuable time and energy to helping those most affected. In accordance with the declaration of a Natural Disaster, there are various assistance schemes, with guidelines and application forms available from my office.
