It's the second anniversary of Tropical Storm Irene. The storm dropped nearly a foot of rain on parts of New York's North Country and Vermont.

Hundreds of miles of roads were damaged or destroyed. Bridges were washed out. In Vermont, seven people died. Homes, businesses... Farms - whole communities were devastated.

Some of the most dramatic damage occurred along the Ausable River, which plunges out of the Adirondacks to Lake Champlain. Brian Mann calls in from along the East Branch of the Ausable, in Keene.
