Federal Emergency Management teams are totaling up the damage across Vermont caused by flooding over the last few days. The teams started work in Bristol and New Haven, two areas hard hit by flooding from heavy downpours over the weekend.
So far Vermont Emergency Management officials have received reports of damaged homes from 175 residents. The flooding was reported in at least seven Vermont counties. Many Vermonters suffered flooded basements, washed out driveways and the loss of furnaces and other major appliances that were submerged in water. There has also been significant damage to local roads, bridges and culverts.
