President Obama, acting on a request by Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, has declared an emergency in Connecticut because of Saturday’s storm.
He ordered federal aid to supplement state and local response to the Halloween eve storm.
Under the declaration, certain storm-related expenses by the state and municipalities will be eligible for federal reimbursement at 75 percent.
Malloy told municipal leaders in conference calls over the weekend that officials from the Department of Homeland Security, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) were already in the state’s emergency operations center in Hartford in anticipation of the declaration.
