Governor Hassan Declares State of Emergency in Response to Flooding from Severe Weather System

CONCORD - Governor Maggie Hassan has declared a State of Emergency for New Hampshire in response to the severe weather system that has caused significant flooding throughout the state, especially in Grafton, Sullivan and Cheshire counties.

"In the last 24 hours, the state has received nearly four inches of rain, including more than three inches in the span of an hour in some communities," Governor Hassan said. "The state's Emergency Operations Center is active and we are in constant contact with local responders, ready to provide assistance as requested. With additional rain possible throughout the day, we continue to encourage Granite Staters not to drive through flooded roadways and to contact local emergency officials for assistance."

The State of Emergency is in effect immediately allowing the Governor to mobilize state assets and resources more effectively.
