FEMA Team Assessing New Hampshire Wind Storm Damage

March 10, 2010

Teams from the Federal Emergency Management Agency are in New Hampshire to assess the damage from the windstorm that blew through the region in late February.

State officials say the state must have at least $1.7 million in damage to qualify for federal assistance with costs that are not covered by insurance. Gov. John Lynch says the state’s preliminary assessment puts the damage closer to $10 million, well above the federal threshold.

FEMA inspectors are visiting six counties with the most damage.

Manchester Mayor Ted Gatsas tells WMUR-TV that tree removal and clean up will likely be among the biggest expenses.

FEMA officials are expected to finish their damage assessments by today.
