Flooding in Central Vermont
We are "somewhat" immuned to flooding in Vermont. It does happen here from time to time and year to year (not at all like other places in the United States). Many homes and camps along Lake Champlain have been battling a terrible spring because of a heavy winter snow and several days of rain (Lake Champlain broke it's record this spring at around 103 feet). However, last night the weather was so severe in Central Vermont. I have never witnessed such intense rain, wind, and hail. Torrando watches in the next town over; Montpelier, our capital, had flooded streets, paved streets in the Town of Barre are nothing but dirt roads and they have litterly crumbled, and homes so severely damaged. More bad weather is expected tonight for us!!
