Lebanon working on storm damage recovery plan

Posted: Updated:

It's been three weeks since severe storms ripped through parts of Lebanon, N.H., and the city continues to make repairs to public infrastructure.

It's estimated the early July storms did more than $6 million in damage. Slayton Hill Road took the brunt of it.

The city is now preparing to update the public on progress. Officials are also looking for feedback on how first responders can better communicate during a disaster.

"We have pretty much restored at least one lane of traffic on Slayton Hill Road and access to everyone's driveway right now; they have at least temporary access to their driveway. Beyond that we are in the process of finalizing a long-term recovery plan which will include plans for the reconstruction of Slayton Hill Road and looking at some problem areas that we have had in the past," Lebanon Fire Chief Chris Christopoulos said.

The long-term recovery plan will be presented to the public this Wednesday at the Fireside Inn and Suites in West Lebanon. State officials will also be on hand to answer questions about help available for individuals.

New Hampshire is still awaiting word from the president on a federal disaster declaration.
