It had already been a wet October and rivers were swollen and the ground saturated. Nine inches of rain fell in a thirty-six hour period and horrendous flooding began. Though all of New England was affected, Vermont was devastated. The state flooded from Newport to Bennington, with the Winooski River Valleythe hardest hit. Eighty-five people died and 9,000 were left homeless. Many of Vermontís roads and over 1,200 bridges were washed away. The great Flood of 1927 would change Vermont forever as communities turned to the state, and the state turned to the federal government for assistance."( from the Vermont Historical Society web site, with Thanks) More than half the contents describe the catastrophe as it affected the White River valley in Vermont. The balance gives a partial survey of the disaster throughout the remainder of Vermont.The photographs alone make this little volume a valuable account of the disaster.
