Floods

What Happened

Catastrophic flash flooding and river flooding occurred across much of Vermont in early to mid-July 2023. The most widespread and significant property damage occurred as a result of prolonged heavy rainfall on July 10th and 11th, when rainfall amounts of 3 to 9 inches were observed across the state over 48 hours. The runoff of excessive and widespread heavy rain caused rivers to swell, inundating many communities after rainfall ended, especially along the Lamoille and Winooski rivers.

What MDS Is Doing

MDS work will focus on flooding related repairs such as drywall, insulation, flooring, and kitchens.
