Officials say three people have died and one person is missing in Vermont in flooding from the remnants of Tropical Storm Irene.

Vermont Emergency Management officials say a woman drowned in the Deerfield River in Wilmington; a man was killed in Mendon after being swept away by floodwaters, and his companion is still missing. And police say another man was found dead today in Lake Rescue in Ludlow.

Irene dumped up to 11 inches of rain on parts of Vermont, turning rivers into torrents, flooding homes and washing out roads and bridges.
