CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire is getting nearly $2 million in emergency relief funds to assist with repair costs for federal lands and highways following Tropical Storm Irene.
At the height of the storm in August 2011, close to 250 roads in New Hampshire were closed due to flooding or damage. Then-Gov. John Lynch had issued an emergency declaration at the time.
The funds come from the U.S. Department of Transportation's Federal Highway Administration.
New Hampshire Rep. Carol Shea-Porter announced the funds Wednesday.
