U.S. President Barack Obama signed a law that additional 50.5 billion dollars for Hurricane "Sandy", which three months ago took the lives of 120 people.

The law was approved in mid-January, the House of Representatives, and the day before - the Senate. Hurricane victims may be left without assistance: Congress the previous session did not consider the document in early January, shifting this care on the shoulders of the newly formed parliament.

Statutory funds will be used for the restoration of transport and housing in New York, New Jersey and other affected areas.
