Lake Champlain - Record-shattering flooding
Burlington, Vt., has been inundated by more than 9 inches of rain since April 1, three times normal rainfall for the period, and received almost 2 inches of rain yesterday alone.
Measuring 125 miles long and up 14 miles wide, Lake Champlain is one of the largest freshwater lakes in the U.S.
Such a large lake takes a long time to rise and fall during a runoff event, says Sosnowski. "The flooding may continue for weeks."
Lake Champlain drains into the Richelieu River, flows northward through part
of eastern Quebec and empties into the St. Lawrence River just east of
Montreal. "Not surprisingly, moderate to major flooding was occurring along
the Richelieu," says Sosnowski.
