Flood Relief in Penobscot County 

Governor John Baldacci said he received word Friday afternoon that President Bush had added Penobscot County to the list of six other counties – Aroostook, Knox, Lincoln, Piscataquis, Somerset and Waldo – that had already been declared eligible for public assistance.

The flooding in late April and early May caused extensive damage to homes, roads, bridges and other property in many parts of northern, central and coastal Maine.
