Hurricane Sandy has been an unwelcome
reminder for many Vermonters who suffered during Tropical Storm Irene 14 months ago. Those affected by Irene spent this weekend getting ready for a dangerous storm – even as
they continued to recover from the previous one.
Town officials in Morristown have
formally approved an agreement with the state to host some beds from the
state mental hospital. The agreement comes nearly nine months after
Tropical Storm Irene devastated the State Hospital in Waterbury.
Only a handful of the families displaced by Tropical Storm Irene who were mobile home residents have been able to return to flooded parks. Many are living in temporary situations and facing the difficulty of making ends meet through the winter.
Eleven weeks after floodwaters swept through a Berlin trailer park, the first residents are ready to move back in. Some of them saw their new homes delivered Thursday morning to the Weston Mobile Home Park.
