Good Night Irene: Stories and photos about the tropical storm that devastated Vermont, the Catskills

For eight hours on a Sunday last August, Tropical Storm Irene created a flash flood sweeping away houses, bridges, highways, cars and shops in three states. Communities became isolated islands when bridges fell and the only way to get in or out was by helicopter. National Guard Humvees patroled the once quiet streets.

Writers, bloggers and photographers from throughout the storm-damaged regions of Vermont, the Catskills and the Berkshires share their stories and photographs in the new book, Good Night Irene: Stories and photos about the tropical storm that devastated Vermont, the Catskills and the Berkshires.

We are joined by co-authors (with Nicole Garman) Craig Brandon, and Michael Ryan, and Susan Goodrich - Executive Director of SALT (Schoharie Area Long Term).
