Vermont Responds to Sandy After Help With Irene
After Tropical Storm Irene caused widespread flooding in Vermont in 2011, volunteers and money poured in from around the country to help with the recovery. Now Vermont is returning the favor, sending utility crews, Red Cross and other volunteers to help victims of Sandy.
Crews from Green Mountain Power have been deployed to Connecticut, and Red Cross volunteers from Vermont are in Westchester County, New York, ready to help greater New Yorkers recover from the devastation wrought by this week's storm.
Among the Red Cross volunteers is Cecelia Dry of Middlebury, who says she was inspired to get involved with the organization after seeing its response to Tropical Storm Irene's impact in Vermont last year.
