RE: Declaration of Civil Preparedness Emergency
Dear Secretary Merrill:
As a result of the severe flooding throughout the State caused by heavy rain from the remnants of
Hurricane Ida, which has caused widespread damage, interfered with transportation, and which
continues to pose significant potential risk to public safety, I hereby proclaim, pursuant to Section
28-9 of the Connecticut General Statutes, that a state of civil preparedness emergency exists.
I am filing this proclamation with you under my hand and seal on this 2nd day of September, 2021.
