Ida's Remnants: Fed OKs Connecticut Disaster Declaration

Hartford, Conn. (AP) -- The Biden administration has approved two portions of Connecticut's request for a major disaster declaration needed to secure federal funds for recovery from the remnants of Hurricane Ida, which caused an estimated $7.2 million in damage in the state.

Democratic Gov. Ned Lamont announced Saturday that renters, homeowners and business owners in hard-hit Fairfield and New London counties — and residents of the Mashantucket Pequot and Mohegan tribal nations — will now be eligible for federal reimbursement for the costs of uninsured or underinsured storm damage to homes and personal property.
