Like we saw with Irene last year, at this moment with the storm still overhead we’re in the tough position of having to wait for definitive damage reports. As we get new information, we’ll be sure to pass it on.
The next update will be issued by the National Weather Service in Burlington at 6am or sooner if conditions warrant. Please stay tuned to NOAA Weather Radio or go to www.weather.gov/burlington for further updates.
