Ripton hit hard by rain, again

Our town has been pounded by heavy rains, once again. Some roads are out, including parts of 127 and 7:
Hours after the flood waters receded, Route 125 east of Route 7 was still closed. The raging waters of the Middlebury River tore out major sections of roadway, sending guard rails tumbling into the water.
Parts of East Middlebury were evacuated. Silver Towers was evacuated. A shelter's been set up in Middlebury. The governor is visiting the county.

The Boston Globe has one article. Here's a map from VTrans:
