The Winooski River After the July 2023 Flood

According to the Washington Post:

“The rainfall that hit parts of Vermont on Monday [July 10, 2023] had less than a 1-in-100 chance of occurring in any given year, according to federal flood data. And yet, for some residents, it brought a sense of déjà vu — it rivaled the devastation of another so-called 100-year storm, Hurricane Irene, from a dozen years ago…”-

Montpelier, Vermont received 5.28 inches of rain on July 10, 2023. That’s .01 inches more than when Hurricane Irene struck on August 28, 2011. 5.28 inches is equivalent to 134 millimeters.

I filmed this video of the Winooski River on July 15, 2023. You can see for yourself how strong the current still was.
