Epic Lake Flood Pics

Lake Champlain here in Vermont has had its worst flood on record. The crest yesterday was a foot over the old record. There's been lots of damage, as you might expect. The governor declared a state of emergency, the National Guard is helping, and we're officially a disaster zone. 

I've been taking pictures of the flood, and the river flooding that led up to it. A few are in this post to share.  I've been contributing, along with almost the entire rest of the staff to extensive flood coverage in the Burlington Free Press if you want more details.

Stay dry!
