Episode Narrative An area of low pressure moved across Vermont during the 16th and delivered heavy rainfall throughout the day. Heavy rainfall exceeded 2 inches across a large portion of Caledonia, Essex and Orleans counties and this resulted in flooding of streams, small rivers as well as induced a landslide during the afternoon and into the early evening hours. The Stannard Brook in Stannard (Caledonia county) experienced high water that resulted in flooding of low-lying fields as well as portions of a nearby road. The Nichols Brook overflowed onto portions of Route 14 just south of Hardwick (Caledonia county). The headwaters of the Lamoille river flooded fields and portions of Route 16 in Greensboro Bend (Orleans county) and there was a landslide on the Hunt Hill road in Brownington (Orleans county) after 2.6 inches of rain fell. Also, portions of Route 102 in Bloomfield (Essex county) was closed due to a mud slide.
