Officials begin adding up flood damages in Vermont

Local News

State and local officials across Vermont are totaling up damage from flooding caused by heavy rains and snowmelt that hit parts of the state.

Some roads remain closed Tuesday, but most of the water has receded and officials are now working to assess the damage.

If the damage reaches a certain threshold, the state could apply to the Federal Emergency Management Agency for disaster assistance.

Mark Bosma of Vermont Emergency Management says the area along the White River in Bethel and Stockbridge was hard hit.

Serious flooding was also reported in the Londonderry area and along the Otter Creek in Rutland County.

A few homes were flooded and homeowners should contact their insurance companies before reoccupying them.

No injuries have been reported.
