Heavy Rain Washes Out Road in Central Vermont

A powerful nor’easter swept through parts of Vermont on October 16 and 17, bringing heavy rain, road closures, and power outages to thousands of residents.

Dan Adam captured this video of water rushing through a portion of Grimes Road in the town of Lincoln. A large piece of the road has been washed away due to heavy rain.

The National Weather Service tweeted a flood watch on the afternoon of October 16, warning people that fallen leaves may clog storm drains and produce street flooding.

Local media reported on October 17 that it would take crews “a few days” to make Grimes Road safely operable again. Credit: Dan Adam via Storyful
