Two years after Tropical Storm Irene

Posted: Updated:

Wednesday marks two years since Tropical Storm Irene sent torrents of rain to test the will of Vermonters.

The storm and its 11 inches of rain killed six people, damaged more than 500 miles of roads and 200 bridges, and displaced thousands.

Across the state Wednesday, there will be ceremonies to mark the event, some in places where they've rebounded, others in places, where rebuilding property and lives still continues.

Author Peggy Shinn wrote the book "Deluge," which focuses on the storm and the stories that came out of it. She joined us to talk about what she found.

Shinn also has a book signing Wednesday, August 28, 2013 at the Phoenix Books in Burlington at 7 p.m.
