More than 100 Boy Scouts had to spend the night in a temporary shelter after flash flooding washed out a road to their camp in Eden.

About 160 campers and staff who were at the Mount Norris Scout Reservation on Route 100 were taken by school buses to a Eden Central School to spend the night last night after water washed away parts of the road leading into the camp.

Ray Doherty, Vermont Emergency Management’s duty officer, says water from a tributary of the Lamoille River rose quickly and unexpectedly.

A camp counselor reported the flooding around 3 p.m.

There were no injuries.
