Hurricane Irene: One Year Later
In late August of 2011, New England prepared as the storm barreled up the east coast. Though downgraded to a tropical storm, Irene was still daunting -- and deadly. To the surprise of many, Vermont was the hardest hit, with roads, bridges, and farmland badly damaged and lives lost. But parts of New Hampshire were hit hard as well. We’ll talk about how we’re recovering from this storm and what we’ve learned.
