Irene's Impact on Vermont: A Crowdsourced Map of Storm Photos and Videos (Updated 9/1) 

UPDATE (9:45 pm): Parts of Vermont were simply devastated by Tropical Storm Irene today. Torrential rains have led to flooding in the state's rivers and streams. Historic covered bridges have been washed away. The National Weather Service expects floodwaters to crest in Montpelier overnight, and says it could be worse than the floods that inundated Montpelier in May. Numerous other Vermont towns are underwater or cut off from surrounding areas due to washed-out roads, too.

If you'd like to lend a hand to help local emergency shelters provide relief, please dial 2-1-1. And Twitter users are coordinating relief efforts using the hashtag #VTresponse.

We're still collecting photos and videos from Irene's aftermath for our interactive map. Click here to send us yours. And scroll to the bottom of this post to see the map so far.

 

Original post: Hurricane Tropical Storm Irene is over Vermont, and she's packing quite a punch. Major flooding is occurring, especially in southern Vermont. Evacuations have been ordered in parts of Brattleboro and Rutland, among other places. It's not pretty out there.

To get a better idea of Irene's impact around Vermont, we're building a crowdsourced map of photos and stories from around Vermont. Check it out at the bottom of this post.

We'd like to see photos and videos from where you are, too. If you don't have any images to share, just tell us how it looks outside. Click here to send us your photos and stories. We'll add more as we get them.

Stay safe out there, everyone.

Since 2014, Seven Days has allowed readers to comment on all stories posted on our website. While we’ve appreciated the suggestions and insights, the time has come to shut them down — at least temporarily.

While we champion free speech, facts are a matter of life and death during the coronavirus pandemic, and right now Seven Days is prioritizing the production of responsible journalism over moderating online debates between readers.

To criticize, correct or praise our reporting, please send us a letter to the editor. Or send us a tip. We’ll check it out and report the results.

Online comments may return when we have better tech tools for managing them. Thanks for reading.
