Popular Vermont Tourist Spot Devastated By Hurricane Irene

Before Irene (click on story text to see 'After')

Quechee Vermont, is an idlyllic tourist destination punctuated with an historic covered bridge, a glass blowing shop, and a sky dotted with hot air ballons.

Hurricane Irene left the sleepy town in shambles after flooding overflowed the Ottauquechee River and washed out the underpinnings of their quaint covered bridge.

The Quechee Gorge funneled the immense quantities of water (7 inches of rain) down its sluice and washed out Main Street taking the bridge with it.
