Flood damage in Grafton County estimated at $3.5M

Posted: Updated:

LEBANON, N.H. (AP) - Officials in New Hampshire's Grafton County estimate damages to be at least $3.5 million from flash flooding this summer.

Federal officials are determining whether the state will qualify for federal funds.

On Wednesday, Gov. Maggie Hassan toured parts of the state that were significantly damaged by last week's flooding. She visited Westmoreland, Lebanon and Claremont to view progress on recovery efforts. Last week, she toured parts of Alstead, Lebanon, Washington and Westmoreland.

The Valley News reports a long-term recovery committee called Upper Valley Strong is still seeking donations, supplies and volunteer labor. They spent time Wednesday with representatives from the American Red Cross, Upper Valley Haven, Listen Community Services, the Grafton County Senior Citizens Council and city officials, offering cleanup advice and explaining available resources.
