Farmers in north-central Connecticut whose businesses were damaged by a tornado could be eligible for up to $5 million in state help. Governor Dannel P. Malloy announced Tuesday that farms and crops damaged by Monday’s tornado and severe weather may apply for grants that he made public on June 23.

Reviczky said the year has been especially trying for agricultural producers.
