Ripton Storm

An unusually heavy rainfall in Ripton on Saturday night washed out major parts of the North Branch Road, the Dugway and many private drives, as well as the a bridge on the North Branch Road, stranding at least four families. Crews from Ripton and Middlebury, as well as numerous residents and volunteers, are working on repairs that likely will total in the hundreds of thousands of dollars, if not more.
Many readers sent photos of the damage they observed in Ripton, more photos than we could include in our print edition. Here is a smattering of some of the photos.
