AYOTTE, SHAHEEN SUPPORT GOVERNOR'S REQUEST FOR DISASTER DECLARATION

Oct 30, 2012

MANCHESTER, NH - In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, U.S. Senators Kelly Ayotte and Jeanne Shaheen sent a letter this morning to President Obama supporting Governor John Lynch's request for a disaster declaration for all ten New Hampshire counties.

SHAHEEN-AYOTTE LETTER TO PRESIDENT OBAMA:

October 30, 2012

Dear Mr. President:

We write today in support of New Hampshire Governor John Lynch's request for a Disaster Declaration for the State of New Hampshire in the wake of hurricane Sandy which brought strong winds across the state as well as heavy rains. This request covers all ten counties in New Hampshire.

Heavy rains, strong winds and gusts as high as 60 miles per hour in some locations caused extensive power outages and produced widespread debris, closing roads across the state. The Governor responded quickly by declaring a state of emergency allowing numerous state resources to be immediately available to our citizens.

Although the cleanup is now underway, the state will continue to feel the effects of this storm for weeks and even months to come. We urge you to grant the Governor's request for a Disaster Declaration immediately, so that our businesses and towns can access the assistance they need.

Thank you for your consideration.
