US Rep Bass Supports Governor's Emergency Declaration Request for Areas of Southwestern New Hampshire

CONCORD, NH – Congressman Charles F. Bass (NH-02) today expressed his strong support for Governor John Lynch’s request for a federal emergency declaration for areas of southwestern New Hampshire that experienced damage as a result of strong storms and flooding last week.

Bass said:

“I spoke to local officials last week about the extensive damage in Keene and other parts of Cheshire County, and it’s clear that a federal declaration will be greatly beneficial in helping this area recover after the extensive flooding on May 29th

“I hope the President approves this request as soon as possible so the affected communities can begin to rebuild roadways, buildings, and homes.  My office stands ready to help the state with this request in any way that we can.”
