Governor Hassan Declares State of Emergency in Response to Strengthening Storm

CONCORD – Governor Maggie Hassan has declared a State of Emergency for New Hampshire in response to the strengthening snow storm, which is now expected to generate snow totals of as much as 30" in parts of the state.

"We have been closely monitoring the storm as it has strengthened, and the expected snow totals have now reached levels where a State of Emergency is needed to allow for the mobilization of additional resources and to access any federal assistance that may become available," said Governor Hassan. "I continue to urge all residents to stay safe, limit their travel and be off the roads by 7 p.m. ahead of the heaviest snowfalls."

The State of Emergency is in effective as of 5 p.m., allowing the Governor to mobilize state assets and resources more effectively as the snow totals increase.
