WATERBURY, Vt. (AP) - Vermont officials are outlining resources available to homeowners after flooding damaged dozens of homes in several communities, rendering some uninhabitable.

Mark Bosma, spokesman for Vermont Emergency Management and Homeland Security, says homeowners can call the 2-1-1 information line to get cleanup kits and inquire about volunteer assistance.

Those who have suffered damage to their homes in the storm should report that damage to their city or town. Towns will compile damage reports that will allow the state to determine if any other assistance could be available to homeowners.

Homeowners returning after an evacuation are urged to ensure no contaminants have entered their home with the floodwaters and to have electrical systems checked by a licensed electrician.
