CONCORD - Congressman Charles F. Bass, R-N.H., said Tuesday he strongly supports Gov. John Lynch's request for a federal disaster declaration for all 10 counties in New Hampshire as a result of Hurricane Sandy.
"The worst of the storm has passed, but more than 200,000 Granite Staters remain without power, many roads across the state are impassable, and trees are downed everywhere," Bass said in a prepared statement. "I strongly support Gov. Lynch's federal disaster declaration request to help recover from this storm and stand ready to support the state's application in any way that I can. A federal disaster declaration will help local communities across the state with the rebuilding process."
