Tropical Storm Irene Aftermath

In the year since Tropical Storm Irene barreled through New England, Vermont continues to recover. The storm claimed lives and homes. Businesses, too. And in certain sections of the state, entire towns were cut off for days from assistance. But Vermont and Vermonters are resilient. Communities quickly banded together and today the state is back on its feet.

To mark the anniversary of Irene, Yankee is featuring the stories of some of the Vermonters affected by the storm. Theirs are stories of hardship, survival, and hope.
