ADAM G – Valley Rep to State
Notes by Rob Williams
After the tremendous impact to individuals, businesses and communities by Hurricane Irene, the Agency of Commerce and Community Development (ACCD) has compiled information for our partners to utilize to help answer questions and direct concerned Vermonters. Please check our website for up to date contact and resource information (http://www.dca.state.vt.us/).
Information for Vermonters and Visitors on Impacts of Hurricane Irene:
August 30th, 2011 Status of FEMA efforts:
The President has made an Emergency Declaration for Vermont. This type of declaration allows Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to immediately assist with shelters, National Guard, emergency repairs, etc. FEMA is gearing up to do Preliminary Damage Assessment (PDA) in each of the 14 counties. The Goal of this phase is to document sufficient damage to get a Major Disaster Declaration from the President.
If you want information on road conditions, call 511:
“511” provides Vermonters and visitors to the state with information on state road closures. The Agency of Transportation is working 24/7 to update the information as fast as possible. AOT is working on a system to report local roads as well. Go to http://www.511vt.com for additional information.
If you are an individual and need immediate help, call 211:
“211” is the resource to help individuals access services now and to register information on individual property damage. (For more information, go to: http://www.vermont211.org/).
If you are a business (for-profit; non-profit; multi-family housing provider, etc.) call 828-3211:
If you are a business looking to report damage to your business or would like to speak to someone about additional resources available, please call 828-3211. The ACCD has set up a system to document damage to businesses and properties (both for and non-profit businesses, including mulit-family housing providers and services) in order to assist FEMA in their collection of information
Communities are reporting storm damage for inclusion in the preliminary damage assessment.
Communities also need to report damages and that information goes to the Vermont Emergency Management. The link to their site for communities to input information is at http://vem.vermont.gov/home/damage_report and filling out the survey on the site. The Regional Planning Commissions are also helping with emergency management for towns in their region. For contact information for an RPC in your town, go to http://www.vapda.org/.
Documenting Impacts to Historic Properties:
ACCD is helping to document impacts to historic resources for various reasons – a) When FEMA teams begin to work in communities they will be aware ahead of time of damaged/destroyed historic properties and can focus on those; b) It will give the historic preservation community a better sense of the extent and location of major damage and where we can help best during the recovery phase; c) It will help us better plan education and training information and workshops during the recovery phase.
What You Can Do Now:
If your property has been damaged, take immediate corrective action – - if your roof is leaking, put a roof on your building; if your carpets are wet, get them dried. If your collections or museum facility has been damaged, put your Emergency Plan in Place NOW.
FEMA recommends that you:
NOTE: You may or may not be eligible for FEMA or other federal assistance but in case you are, the above information will be critical.
As the Floodwaters Recede — A Checklist of Things to Do: (Courtesy Preservation Trust of Vermont, at http://archive.constantcontact.com/fs041/1102172352505/archive/1107373832970.html) Adapted from: INFORMATION, National Trust for Historic Preservation Booklet No. 82, 1993, Treatment of Flood-Damaged Older and Historic Buildings, and provided courtesy of the New Bern Historic Preservation Commission.
The following checklist will help you respond to flood damage in historic and older buildings. Read the steps through carefully and take time to plan. While it is tempting to wade right in with a shovel and mop, it is very important to develop a plan for cleanup and rehabilitation. Unfortunately, overly zealous cleanup efforts can result in historic materials being carted away, excessively rough cleaning methods, and the unnecessary loss of historic fabric. The best way to prevent additional damage to historic structures and materials during a time of duress is to use caution and plan ahead.
VERMONT EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT NEWS RELEASE

Vermont Emergency Management
Time: 11:30 a.m.
Vermont Emergency Operations Center Update
BURLINGTON, VT – Vermont continues recovery efforts following the storm that hit the state Sunday and Monday. The situation is constantly changing; this is the latest information from the state Emergency Operations Center.
So far, there have been three fatalities due to the storm. It is expected an additional death will result as the missing person from Mendon has yet to be found.
There are currently 13 communities that are unreachable by vehicle due to road damage. There are more than 200 roads that are still impassable state wide and all 500 road workers from the Agency of Transportation are on the street today working on repairs. Much of that staff is working with local road crews to make isolated towns accessible.
511 or www.511vt.com is available for state road conditions. THE PUBLIC IS ASKED TO NOT CALL 211 FOR ROAD CLOSURES – THEY DO NOT HAVE THAT INFORMATION AND THE EXTRA CALLS ARE IMPEDING THE STATE’S ABILITY TO REACH THOSE WHO NEED TO REPORT DAMAGE OR SHELTER INFORMATION.
The 13 isolated communities and another 8 that have only limited access will be receiving food, water and other necessities from the state later today. These supplies will be trucked or flown in to communities, depending on accessibility, by the Vermont National Guard. The provisions were shipped in Monday night from the federal staging area in Massachusetts.
The Vermont State Police continue in their efforts to ensure the safety and well-being of those in flooded towns. 130 troopers and detectives have been providing security to communities, monitoring roads looking for compromised or otherwise dangerous sections, and welfare checks. The VSP has also been responding to accidents in damaged areas. Travel in damaged areas is strongly discouraged as it can be dangerous and it could hamper road repair, utility restoration and other recovery efforts.
The Red Cross has operated shelters on an ongoing basis since Sunday morning. Hundreds of people have spent the night at a shelter or have been fed by the Red Cross.
20,000 power customers are still without service. Utility crews have restored power to more than 30,000 customers since Sunday. Some could be without service until the end of the week as road conditions are making it difficult to access some areas.
President Barack Obama approved a Federal Disaster Declaration for Vermont on Monday morning. The declaration will provide 75% reimbursement to communities for repairs to public infrastructure like roads, bridges, and public buildings.
Those returning to flooded homes must have a licensed electrician inspect their electrical system before taking residence. Those who have pollutants like fuel oil or any other hazardous materials should call a professional hazmat cleaning service to clear it up.
Vermont Emergency Management will operate its Emergency Operations Center at the FEMA offices in Burlington at least until the end of the week. Contact information for the media is 802-951-2708.
Info from Jill Arace, Valley resident and Executive Director of the Vermont Association of Conservation Districts:
As you’ve probably heard, President Obama has made an emergency declaration for the State of Vermont. This declaration releases federal funding to support emergency management personnel and their activities while we’re still in this emergency phase. At a later date, there will be further declarations that will release additional funds for both emergency assistance and reconstruction. Folks from various agencies are collecting data regarding damages to make requests for additional funds from Washington. Some of these programs will support repairs retroactively.
Here is a reminder that if you intend to make any kind of claim, whether you are a homeowner, farmer, or local government, you should document your losses with date stamped photographs before you clean up. Also document any costs you are incurring.
I’m attaching here information regarding the NRCS Emergency Watershed Protection Program, which was updated yesterday. This program supports homeowners and towns facing immediate threats to life and property with 75% of the costs. NRCS is already working with a number of towns affected by the spring flooding through this program. There are funds remaining from that effort and new funding on the way. If our towns haven’t already contacted them, I suggest you do so asap – especially Moretown – and they will send an engineer down your way to make an assessment. As you can imagine, engineers are going to be at a premium over the next weeks and months.
