Gov. Lamont declares state of emergency in response to flooding caused by Ida

Gov. Ned Lamont has declared a state of emergency in response to the widespread flood damage caused by the remnants of Hurricane Ida, which passed through Connecticut last night and early this morning.
The governor said in a release, “The filing of this declaration will help provide state and local emergency management officials with the necessary tools to aid the impacted areas in safely recovering from this record-breaking rainfall that we received overnight."
Ida has left thousands of Connecticut residents without power and left many streets and homes flooded with water.
