As much as two months’ worth of rain poured in only two days, causing “historic and catastrophic” flash flooding in Vermont, the state’s governor said. “Make no mistake, the devastation and flooding we’re experiencing across Vermont is historic and catastrophic,” Governor Phil Scott told reporters on Tuesday.

The state of emergency was declared in the state on Monday by President Joe Biden and recent days brought some of the worst flooding in more than ten years to parts of the northeastern US, including New York state.

Since the flooding started on Sunday, more than 100 rescues have been carried out by emergency workers in boats throughout the state. Additionally, the flooding on Tuesday has forced the closure of more than 100 roads around Vermont.

In some areas of the state, the flooding was worse than that caused by Tropical Storm Irene in 2011, which killed six people in Vermont, Scott said.

Teams from Connecticut, Michigan, and North Carolina have been added to the rescue effort. The towns of Londonderry, Weston, Bridgewater, Andover, Ludlow, and Middlesex have seen a significant number of rescue operations.

In Montpelier, the state’s capital, an emergency order was withdrawn on Tuesday, even though certain streets were still under water after the Winooski River burst its banks.

Officials have claimed that the Wrightsville Dam, which is upstream from the state capital of Vermont, and two other dams in the state that had been getting close to capacity are no longer anticipated to overflow.

Governor Scott, however, urged caution over the coming days. “We are not out of the woods,” he said. “This is nowhere near over.”
