Officials: Storm Caused $4 Million in Damages in New Hampshire

Almost all the damage was in Grafton County

GRAFTON COUNTY, NH - Severe storms and flooding caused more than $4 million in estimated damages in New Hampshire, according to the state Homeland Security and Emergency Management officials.

Almost all of that damage occurred in Grafton County.

Portions of route 25A were a wash out Saturday in Orford, NH.

Sixty seven state, municipal and federal roads were damaged.

"Most importantly, no significant injuries or deaths have been reported.” HSEM Director Perry Plummer said. “That stands as a testament to the quick actions of our emergency managers and responders. We currently have in excess of $4 million in estimated damages and will likely meet the disaster thresholds necessary to ask the Governor to seek a federal disaster declaration.”

One dozen homes were isolated by flood waters.

Officials advise residents and visitors to stay out of the water because of extremely dangerous and fast moving waters.
