Vermont is the only New England state commonly associated with mudslides and landslides.
A few floods have plagued Vermont’s history. One in particular stands out from the others, the November 1927 flood. A storm in the Atlantic made landfall and moved inland to the state, causing 88 deaths and damaging over 1,200 bridges statewide. Whole villages in the Barre-Montpelier area were swept away.
Spring in Vermont is commonly known as the mud season, causing mudslides in the mountainous areas of the state.
