Murphy to tour Hamden storm damage


HAMDEN, Conn. (WTNH) - United States Senator Chris Murphy will be taking a firsthand look at the storm damage in Hamden on Wednesday afternoon.

It has been two weeks since severe storms and a tornado tore through the town, but people are still trying to clean up the debris. 

Senator Murphy is urging any homeowner affected by the storm to report the cost for both insured and uninsured damages as soon as possible.

That's because he and other lawmakers are pushing for a federal disaster declaration to get financial help from the Federal Emergency Management Agency. 

He is expected to tour the storm damage at 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday in Hamden.
