Tropical Storm Irene Update


Lesley-Ann Dupigny-Giroux

September 1st, 2011
 
Hi everyone

 
I hope that all of your loved ones and friends up and down the eastern seaboard are all safe and sound in Irene's aftermath. I just wanted to update you on a number of resources and happenings around related to the ongoing recovery effort.
 
With my State Climatologist hat on I have been trying to serve as a centralized location for the science behind tropical systems in Vermont, hazard recovery resources and data collection efforts. I have set up a page at:
 
http://www.uvm.edu/~vtstclim/?Page=Irene_flooding_2011.html .
 
It contains the Center for Research on Vermont blog that Cherie created to capture the oral stories of affected Vermonters; GIS-based crowd-sourcing set up by Bill Morris (who was the last RA to work with me); photo galleries and other sites that my colleagues from state agencies have sent in.
 
If you run across any other Irene-related resources that would benefit folks in this recovery phase and beyond, please let me know.
 
Best regards and I hope that your semester has started off swimmingly!
Lesley-Ann
