I hate it when we make the national news like this.

Queechee Covered Bridge:

Unfortunately, the Queechee Covered Bridge was wiped-out by floodwaters.

From CNN:

Numerous "swift-water" rescue teams were dispatched Sunday night around Vermont, where state emergency management spokesman Mark Bosma said some small towns were "entirely covered with water" and people, including a woman who was in labor, were stranded in schools and cars.

Vermont State Police Capt. Ray Keefe said Wilmington is "cut off," hundreds of roads had been closed, and some homes were washed off foundations and into lakes.  And "conditions continue to worsen dramatically" in Vermont's capital of Montpelier, city manager William Fraser said Sunday night, noting National Weather Service warnings of rising river waters that have spurred evacuations and will cause "major flooding" downtown early Monday morning.

More below.

In addition, one woman is "feared dead" in Vermont after being swept away in raging waters in Wilmington, Bosma said.

Wilmington:

Wilmington, later in the day:

We were hit hard because we had a very wet spring, and soaking rains last week. The ground was already saturated.  It's highly possible that we'll lose more wind-weakened trees, so people should take care in wooded areas until the ground dries out.

From the LA Times:

State authorities' main focus was evacuating residents in flooded areas. Swift water rescue teams responded to calls throughout the day Sunday, and the National Guard brought in high water trucks that were dispatched upstate.

“Even with all those assets we haven’t been able to get to everyone yet,” Bosma said. “Some people have just had to wait it out until the water subsided.”

Bosma said residents from low-lying areas were being advised to stay with friends who live on higher ground, “but on the other side of the coin, if you don’t need to be on the roads — stay off the roads.”

 “People are becoming stranded on the road when they hit floodwaters,” Bosma said, “and there just aren’t enough emergency responders to get to everyone.”

Please check the Vermont Agency of Transportation site for road updates before you venture out.  If you don't have to travel, it might be a good idea to stay home.

I will be updating this, but I want to get the information about road conditions out.

Update: 5:54 AM

I'm watching the sun rise over the Green Mountains.  I do this on a regular basis.  There's still heavy cloud cover.... some of the ugliest clouds I've seen in my five years of watching the sun rise from this location.  They are obscuring the tops of Killington and Pico peaks.

One of our trees toppled.  When there's more light, I'll head out to survey the damage.  Thankfully, it's calm out.  After the last 30 hours, this is a relief.  What's ominous, though, is that by this time of morning, the bird chorus is in full morning song.  All I hear is one crow in the distance.

Update:  6:20 AM From WCAX-TV

 

Gov. Peter Shumlin sent out a message to Vermonters during the Channel 3 News at 6 p.m.

"The message from me: Vermonters, let's use common sense. The worst could still lie ahead of us. Downed powerlines, flooded roads, do not drive into standing water. We can replace roads, we can replace bridges and buildings, we cannot replace people," said Shumlin, D-Vermont.

Update:  6:27 AM  From the WCAX-VT Facebook page:

State officials tell Jennifer Reading the Marshfield Dam will not have to be released. Big relief for those down river.

Update:  6:37 AM  Otter Creek poured into Rutland.

"We went door to door yesterday on Clover Street. We knew there was going to be an issue with Clover Street because historically that's the portion of town that gets hit with flooding," Mayor Chris Louras said.

Louras held an emergency meeting with the board of alderman Sunday evening. He says there are three major areas the city is focused on at this point in time.

The first is the Moonbrook area near Combination Pond. Crews began evacuating that area around 8 p.m. and continued to evacuate throughout the night.

The second area of concern is Patches Dam owned by CVPS. Officials say they've been watching the dam closely all day.

Another area of concern is the Dorr Drive Bridge over Otter Creek. The bridge, as we reported this spring, is considered structurally deficient by the state.

Otter Creek is at record levels cresting at over 16 feet-- twice the flood stage of 8 feet.

Conditions only worsened in Rutland County Sunday night. Castleton College is completely underwater and won't reopen until Tuesday. We also know the Brandon House of Pizza on Route 7 and Route 73 has come off of its foundation and is in the middle of the road which is closed. Meanwhile, many remain stranded as the city scrambles to evacuate the homes devastated by Irene.

Update:  6:49 AM  Vermont state offices closed.

Public Safety: State Offices Closed
Due to weather conditions, all state offices have been authorized to be completely closed on Monday August 29, 2011. Only specifically authorized critical staff members should report for work at their designated alternate work sites. The state is expected to re-open
at regularly scheduled hours on Tuesday, August 30th.

All employees should pay close attention to news and website updates before leaving for a state office on Tuesday August 30th

Update:  7:00 AM  Governor Shumlin declared a State of Emergency on Saturday.

Update:  7:30 AM  Emergency Management was forced to leave its headquarters in Waterbury due to flooding last night. The operation center was moved to Burlington.

Update:  7:35 AM  Here's a map of power outages in Vermont. Over 50,000 people are without power.  

V-Trans has stranded road crews due to roads being washed-out.

Update:  7:50 AM  I'm sure we won't know for days how the aftermath of Hurricane Irene compares, but until this point (and possibly into the future) the Great Flood of 1927was the worst natural disaster in Vermont history.

Update:  8:09 AM  The morning bird chorus is late, but finally started singing.  Sun's breaking through the clouds.

Update:  8:27 AM  Vermont Emergency Management will be posting an updated report at 8:30 AM.  

Homeowners are encouraged to call 1-800-621-FEMA (3362) or visit www.disasterassistance.gov to register for Individual Disaster Assistance from FEMA.  FEMA Joint Field Office open in Burlington for disasters DR 1995 and DR 4001.  Disaster Recovery Centers are open in St. Johnsbury and Barre to assist applicants for federal disaster assistance.

Update:  8:57 AM Via kamarvt -

Mendon VT here. We cannot get out.
We are literally marooned.

This is sobering; there is no way to get out of this valley, and it is not a matter of waiting for floodwaters to recede; they have already taken the major roads with them.
Rt 4, a major east/west artery thru the Green mountains is missing large sections right near my home. the Wheelerville brook became a raging torrent and has scraped Rt 4 away from the cliff face. It is simply not there anymore.

Further up toward Killington the road has buckled as both shoulders succumbed to runoff. the road has been eaten away all along Sherburne Pass.  Heading east, the road has been bisected by a flash flood that gouged a major chasm right across all three lanes, demolished a home, and damaged the church across what used to be the street.

In Bridgewater, Woodstock, and points east, floods are, well, biblical. Photos from the flats just west of Woodstock show massive propane tanks floating by the top of the farmer's market sign.

So Rt 4 is out and will be out for months, it appears.

South via Rt 7 is no better.  The Cold River took out the double bridges along the divided section of  Rt 7, and wreaked havoc in Wallingford. Detouring via Cold River rd is impossible; the river removed sections of those roads as well.

It wouldn't matter anyway. Rt 103 in Cuttingsville and Ludlow is a lake. I do not know how much destruction to the roads has occurred, but the water was moving pretty quickly, so it is likely the surface is gone there as well.
North via rt 7 dead ends in Brandon, where the water has rearranged the real estate, putting the House of Pizza in the middle of Rt 7.
Brando Gap is also out, as the rivers that run adjacent to Rt 73 have done their worst as well.

Savvy Vermonters could normally piece together some sort of escape via logging roads, etc, but none of those would have survived the torrents that came out of the mountains yesterday.

We are looking at the worst flooding event in Vermont history, at least for the central portion of the state. Things south of here don't look any better, but they may not be cut off as we are. For an extended time, we will be dealing with severe infrastructure problems; Rts 4 & 7 are the main arteries for the entire central part of the state, and they are not merely flooded, they are gone.

Returning to work is something that will happen, i believe, in a matter of weeks or months, not days.

(I should mention that Mrs kamarvt and I are fine, our property is unscathed, and we somehow still have power, though we did lose internet for about 12 hrs overnight).

Here's a great map that is regularly updated for observed and forecast river conditions.  Current conditions include rivers with major, moderate, minor, and no flooding.

Update:  11:47 AM Two places to find immediate info. from people in Vermont:  Via huttotex and greenbird: Twitter hashtag #VTIrene ,and WCAX-TV on Facebook.  I have a slow Internet connection, so can't access Twitter.

Update:  12:55 PM radical simplicity has also posted a check-in post for Vermont Daily Kos users.  There's also some important information there about the difference between 511 and 211 phone numbers.

Update:  1:44 PM For folks who can access Twitter:  @VTGovernor is using #VTIrene and #VTResponse hashtags.

Update:  2:01 PM radical simplicity has created a LotsaHelpingHands page for Vermont DKos   to help coordinate volunteer efforts. It is intended to be a state-wide clearing house.

Updated:  3:15 PM  Hannah posted in tribute to two covered bridges lost.  

Update:  3:30 PM Via Aunte Ra: Vermont Volunteer Resource.  

In learning from my work as a volunteer after Katrina, it’s hard to want to help, but not know where to start. As Vermont cleans up from Irene, this will be an open source page to get help requests connected with those who want to help.

Update:  3:40 PM Via Carolyn Urban:  

Statement from the White House:

The President today declared an emergency exists in the State of Vermont and ordered federal aid to supplement state and local response efforts due to the emergency conditions resulting from Hurricane Irene beginning on August 26, 2011, and continuing.

The President's action authorizes the Department of Homeland Security, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), to coordinate all disaster relief efforts which have the purpose of alleviating the hardship and suffering caused by the emergency on the local population, and to provide appropriate assistance for required emergency measures, authorized under Title V of the Stafford Act, to save lives and to protect property and public health and safety, and to lessen or avert the threat of a catastrophe in the State of Vermont.

Specifically, FEMA is authorized to identify, mobilize, and provide at its discretion, equipment and resources necessary to alleviate the impacts of the emergency. Emergency protective measures, limited to direct federal assistance, will be provided at 75 percent federal funding.

Update:  7:27 PM  Time for a musical interlude.  Here's a story of a hurricane with a happy ending.

Update:  8:00 PM Some seem to think that Big City Media doesn't care about VT people.  Well, we made the front page of the New York Times.  It seems the Gray Lady has a heart of gold.

(Please feel free to add corrections or new information in the comments, and I'll post it here.)

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
