Roads flooded after severe weather hits Vermont

RUTLAND, Vt., - Severe weather in Rutland, Vermont has left a number of roads flooded.

On Wednesday, people are working to begin repairs from the storm water that rushed down streets. Many workers cleared drains so that the water had somewhere to go.

Hail as big as a quarter also fell in some places on Tuesday night.

About 800 people were without power.

Thankfully, most of the damage was not too serious.

"The biggest concerns in terms of damage right now is in terms of undermined infrastructure, storm sewers, grates, roads, and of course people's basements, said Rutland Mayor Chris Louras.

The mayor says two roads and sidewalks were damaged, but the damage was below the million dollar level needed for federal help.
