President Donald Trump has granted New Hampshire's request for federal disaster aid to cover storm damage this fall.

Heavy rain and strong winds swept across northern and western New Hampshire right around Halloween. The storm left behind damaged roads and bridges, as well as significant power outages.

FEMA estimated it cost the state nearly $6 million. Governor Chris Sununu requested federal assistance for Belknap, Carroll, Coos, Grafton and Sullivan Counties. President Trump has now signed-off on that request.

Federal aid will partially reimburse local cities and towns for their clean-up work.
