In August 2011, hurricane Irene destroyed towns up and down the east coast. While Irene headed north up the coast, it weakened to a tropical storm making landfall in southern New Jersey then again in Brooklyn, NY. What happened next devastated many small towns as Irene transitioned to an extratropical cyclone striking Vermont. Marion Abrams, a resident of Pittsfield, VT and a documentary filmmaker captured what happened to her town of only 500 people; a town cut off on both ends as the small White River became a raging natural disaster. This is Marion’s story of what became known as the most isolated town in Vermont.If you would like to learn more about the Natural Disaster & Emergency Management (NDEM) Expo please visit us on the web - https://www.ndemevent.com
