BENNINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - FEMA is being asked to come assess damage after flooding ruins roads in southern Vermont.

Following the rain storm last week, Vermont now must prove there’s at least a million dollars worth of damage and recovery costs to qualify for federal money.

State leaders have done a preliminary assessment in Bennington and Windham Counties and say it’s more than one million.

Reimbursement costs include repair work, debris removal and overtime pay.

Homeowners should report damage to their insurance company and 2-1-1. If you need help, contact the Vermont Divisions of Financial Regulation Insurance division at 800-964-1784.
