Victims of last week’s flooding in central Vermont gathered at a  forum in Barre with representatives of more than a dozen social service and government agencies.

More than 100 people turned out for Thursday night’s event at the Barre Auditorium, hearing presentations from officials of the United Way, the state Health Department and the state Department of Banking, Insurance, Securities and Health Care Administration.

A retired state worker who was flooded out of the River Run mobile home park in Berlin, was among them. She was looking for information about where she can to move to next, because she doesn’t want to return to River Run.

Representatives of the Federal Emergency Management Agency were in Barre on Thursday to assess flood damage.
