Hurricane Sandy's effects are still being felt in parts of the country as far-reaching as the midwest. While the storm has, for the most part, ended in New England, the region is still struggling to regain normalcy, as thousands of residents' homes were damaged or lost power.
New Hampshire homeowners have been sharing their stories with local authorities, and numerous news outlets have reported critical injuries to individuals in the Granite State during Monday's harrowing cyclone.
The Union Leader reported that one man was injured in Windham when a tree fell on his car as he drove between Range and Cobbett's Pond Road. William Deluca III, the victim, was transported with critical injuries to Massachusetts General Hospital just after the accident, which occurred around 5 p.m. Monday, during the peak of the storm. Further details on his condition or the particular nature of his wounds were not available.
Another New Hampshire man was not so lucky, according to the newspaper. A Woodstock resident was killed in a mudslide as he was inspecting damage done to his company's progress on a residential construction project.
The Lincoln Police Chief, Theodore Smith, told the source, "With all this rain, basically the ground liquifies. He was standing there looking at it. The entire mound of dirt and rocks carried him down. It was just like a dam breaking."
More reports like this are sure to arise in the coming days, as rescue crews begin their efforts to locate residents in the region. If you have been injured in Hurricane Sandy, an experienced New Hampshire personal injury lawyer may be able to help argue your claim in court and help you receive any damages you may be entitled to.
