(WFLX) - Repairs from Sandy in our area are being expedited by state leaders.

The Department of Environmental Protection has issued an emergency order authorizing a quick response to the widespread damage. This essentially cuts out a lot of the red tape that would slow down recovery efforts.

Damage along the Treause Coast is already expected to exceed $12 million.
