Lynch Asks for Disaster Declaration for NH



    CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire Gov. John Lynch has asked
    President Barack Obama to declare portions of the state have
    suffered a major disaster as a result of heavy rain, wind and
    flooding from March 14 to April 2.

    Communities and the state estimate damage to be more than $3
    million. On Monday, Lynch requested a declaration for Hillsborough,
    Merrimack, and Rockingham counties.
    If Obama approves the declaration, the state and communities
    would receive assistance to cover emergency operations and repair
