Christie asks for disaster declaration following Tropical Storm Lee

Attention: open in a new window. PrintE-mail

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has asked President Barack Obama to speed up the federal declaration of a major disaster in the state due to Tropical Storm Lee.

Christie’s letter urges the president to ensure that state and local governments and individually affected residents receive federal assistance as quickly as possible for damage resulting from the storm.

The storm closely follows Hurricane Irene, which displaced New Jerseyans throughout the state and led to widespread power outages and historic flooding levels. In the wake of the storm, all 21 counties in the state were declared disaster areas. 

According to a statement from the governor’s office, Tropical Storm Lee has included “intense and sustained rainfall, exacerbating the devastation caused by Hurricane Irene on the families, businesses, and governments of the state.

“In light of these conditions and the serious impact they are having on New Jersey’s communities, field damage assessments should not be required to determine the state’s eligibility for supplemental federal assistance.”
