Governor Chris Sununu is requesting federal emergency funding for damages resulting from March's blizzard.
In a letter sent to the President Friday, Sununu described in detail how the two-day March storm "strained" local and state resources.
He says more than 143,000 people were left without power, and roughly 500 schools were forced to close.
According to a preliminary federal assessment, the storm cost Carroll and Belknap Counties an estimated $2 million.
If the request is granted, government agencies and certain nonprofits may be eligible for this money.
