BULLETIN: ‘GO TO UPPER FLOORS!’ Vermont’s Capitol City Braces for Dam Spill Over

DEVELOPING STORY: Citizens of Vermont’s capital city are being urged to take shelter in the upper floors of their homes as dam is on the verge of being overtopped. “People in at risk areas may wish to go to upper floors in their houses,” the Montpelier Police Dept. said in a statement. “If water exceeds capacity (at the Wrightsville Dam), the first spillway will release water into the North Branch River. This has never happened since the dam was built so there is no precedent for potential damage. There would be a large amount of water coming into Montpelier which would drastically add to the existing flood damage.” Watch videos below.
