Tropical Storm Irene Causes Heavy Flooding Across Vermont

We were keen on encouraging everyone else to get ready for the storm, and we probably should have taken our own advice! It seems that while New York City and other major urban areas along the northern East Coast were spared the worst-case-scenario damage, our very own state of Vermont is not faring nearly as well.

Although major media outlets are not reporting many details, we’re tuned in to Vermonters across the state via Twitter and Facebook, and we’re hearing some scary stuff. Luckily it seems that few people have been injured, at least not many injuries are being reported. But many towns are almost completely isolated as heavy flooding has washed out the surrounding roads. Many of Vermont’s historic covered bridges have also succumbed to the rising waters. That may not seem like much of a problem, so what if some antiques get washed away, right? Unfortunately, Vermont’s charming covered bridges are not merely antiques. They’re often the only way to get across the typically calm rivers that flow through the Green Mountain State.

Here are some resources for anyone looking to find out more about the conditions in Vermont.

We hope you’re all safe and dry. Wish Vermont the best in what may be a mucky, lengthy recovery.
