ROYALTON, Vt. (AP) - Flood-weary Vermonters are seeking answers to their questions as the cleanup from the flooding brought on by Tropical Storm Irene continues across the state.
Gov. Peter Shumlin and representatives with the Federal Emergency Management Agency met with about 80 residents Sunday at the South Royalton Fire Department firehouse.
Residents asked myriad questions stemming from the damage from flooding caused by the torrential rains from Sunday's storm. Vermonters watched the skies warily for even more heavy rains that are forecast from Sunday night into Tuesday.
Sunday's meeting included such questions as how renters can get assistance for their losses in the floods or getting the state's OK to withdraw gravel from rivers to help rebuild roads.
