NM delegation seeking relief from July floods

September 20, 2013 • State News

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — The state’s congressional delegation wants the Obama Administration to act quickly on requests for disaster assistance from severe July floods.

The delegation [auth] recently sent two letters to the president asking for help from floods that caused damage in New Mexico and the Santa Clara Pueblo.

New Mexico and the Santa Clara Pueblo have each asked for a federal disaster declaration, which would provide federal assistance for restoration, debris removal and cleanup.

The lawmakers added that severe floods last week have compounded the damage, causing multiple community evacuations, further public infrastructure damage and landslides.
