President Trump has approved a major disaster declaration for Grafton County. Last month, severe rains and flash flooding caused significant road damage.
Federal, state and local officials estimate it cost $2.9 million dollars to respond to the flooding.
Ten communities had their infrastructure affected by the storm, including the town of Orange, which had an estimated $900,000 in damages.
“It’s a tremendous difference to our tiny town,” said Dorothy Heinrichs, chair of the town select board.
