WASHINGTON — Correcting what Connecticut’s senators called “a serious oversight,” the Obama administration has included New Haven County in a disaster declaration that opened the door to millions of dollars in federal aid to towns hardest hit by January’s massive snowstorm.
WASHINGTON – Towns in New Haven, New London, Tolland and Windham counties suffered at least $6.6 million in damages and costs from January’s devastating blizzard, a state emergency management official says.
In New York, the second-guessing of Gov. Andrew Cuomo was well under way when Gov. Dannel P. Malloy stepped to the microphones in Hartford for a final briefing Tuesday on a blizzard that could have been named Storm Goldilocks in Connecticut. Politically, it was just about right.
Gov. Dannel P. Malloy ordered the closure of Connecticut’s highways, canceled state-employee shifts and generally admonished anyone from trying to travel until a fierce winter storm subsides Wednesday.
