Vermont works to recover from devastating floods
Significant damage was reported in parts of Vermont after heavy rain swelled rivers and reservoirs in the state. Montpelier, the state capital, was one of the hardest-hit places. Water began to recede Tuesday as residents nervously watched a dam holding back a reservoir upstream. More rain is in the forecast late this week, which has some wondering if more floodwater is headed their way.
