August 28th, 2011. A collapsed bridge over flooded waters.
Sunday, August 28, 2011
The worst flooding in 83 years washed out more than 200 roads and three historic covered bridges. Tropical Storm Irene left a dozen communities in the White River Valley stranded and forced to rely on helicopters for food and water deliveries. A tenth of the state was without electricity and phone service.
