BENTON, N.H. — Officials with the White Mountain National Forest say work to repair damage from severe thunderstorms earlier this month likely will continue through the fall and beyond.

Initial assessments of storms and flooding the weekend of July 1 showed more than $11.5 million in damage, mostly in Grafton County. In the White Mountain National Forest, most of the damage is in the towns of Benton, Warren, Ellsworth, Rumney, Campton, and Waterville Valley.

Some roads remain closed, including Long Pond Road, which was severely damaged and will remain closed for the foreseeable future.
