    Background: HEAVY RAIN AND WARM THAWING WEATHER HAS FILLED SEVERAL RIVERS IN THE EASTERN UNITED STATES WITH FLOOD WATER AND ICE THAT HAS CARRIED AWAY A BRIDGE AND CRUSHED SOME HUNDRED VEHICLES. BUT NO INJURIES TO RESIDENTS WERE REPORTED IN THE FLOODED AREAS OF HARD HIT VERMONT, THE UPPER PART OF NEW YORK STATE AND ADJOINING AREAS OF PENNSYLVANIA.

    THE WORST DAMAGE WAS IN NORTHERN VERMONT WHERE ICE, WHICH HAS CLOGGED THE WHITE RIVER, LIFTED A BRIDGE FROM ITS BASE AND DUMPED IT INTO THE SWIFT-MOVING WATER. OTHER DAMAGE IN VERMONT WAS AT HARDWICK WHERE ANOTHER BRIDGE WAS DESTROYED. SIXTY HOMES HAD TO BE EVACUATED AS ICE SWEPT OUT OF THE RIVER.

    THESE COMMUNITIES HAVE BEEN DECLARED DISASTER AREAS, THUS ASSURING THEM OF FINANCIAL AID.
