Gov. Ned Lamont has requested a major disaster declaration from the White House nearly two months after the remnants of Hurricane Ida left a trail of destruction across the country.
The state was left with more than $7 million in damage to homes and businesses. Parts of western Connecticut received 8 inches of rain.
If the Biden administration grants that declaration, Connecticut would get federal funds to help recover and homeowners could apply for federal funds for uninsured flood damage.
