VT Emergency Management requested swift water rescue assets to assist Barre City FD with the evacuation of subjects stranded by flood waters.
Upon arrival at the staging area, Stowe Mtn Rescue (SMR) was immediately dispatched to evaluate a flooded area of North Main Street. A group of 4 were found stranded in their vehicle by rising flood waters. They were evacuated without incident and taken to a emergency shelter for the night. Several their other stranded vehicles were searched, but no additional vehicles were occupied.
A second cell of thunderstorms was forecast to drop an additional 1-2" of rain. SMR was requested to move to the Barre Town FD for staging until this cell passed. The cell luckily produced less rain and we were released from Barre at 2:30 AM.
