Wild weather hit hard yesterday, damaging some roadways, especially in the Upper Valley.
In Lebanon, some roads were impassable or washed out entirely. Dozens of people were evacuated from a brand new affordable housing complex, and bussed to shelter at Lebanon High School.
"I think they were pretty stressed, I mean it’s a brand new building, they haven’t had it open for a month yet. We just did the ribbon cutting ceremony on Thursday," said Red Cross volunteer Linda Nordman.
Twin Pines Housing Trust, the non-profit owner of the flooded complex, is temporarily housing tenants in a nearby hotel while the property damage is being assessed.
Meanwhile the Red Cross is keeping the high school shelter open in case another storm hits the water-logged region.
Volunteers are keeping food, toiletries, and cots on hand for residents from other hard hit towns, including several surrounding Mt. Ascutney.
