The Federal Emergency Management Agency says it's given New Hampshire more than a million dollars in disaster aid after the severe storm that hit nearly a year ago.

The storm in late October 2017 brought heavy flooding and high winds throughout the state.

It washed out major roads, caused widespread power outages, prompted evacuations and destroyed some homes.

With damage caused by Hurricane Harvey still being tallied and Hurricane Irma set to make landfall, New Hampshire officials are taking stock of the state's preparedness in what could prove to be a record-breaking year for major weather events in the United States.

Several costly natural disasters have hit New Hampshire in recent years, such as the “Mother’s Day Flood,” which caused more than $25 million in damage.
