New Haven (AP) — Gov. Dannel P. Malloy says more than $367 million in federal assistance has been approved to help Connecticut with disaster expenses related to Superstorm Sandy.
Malloy's announcement Friday came as other officials toured the shoreline to view storm damage and highlight ongoing recovery needs for homeowners, businesses and municipalities.
U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal says he wants to make sure the costs of the storm are not forgotten and that the state is prepared for catastrophic storms.
Laurel Blatchford, executive director of the Hurricane Sandy Rebuilding Task Force Task Force, assured officials the state has not been forgotten and the federal government will continue to provide support.
U.S. Rep. Rosa DeLauro cited numerous needs, including repairing sea walls, addressing beach erosion and dredging harbors. Officials also noted some residents are still displaced from their homes.
