WATERBURY, Vt. (AP) - After being driven out by flooding caused by Tropical Storm Irene five years ago, a Waterbury child care center is scheduled to reopen in its former location by the end of October.

WCAX-TV reports (https://bit.ly/2crqHJi ) the Hunger Mountain Children’s Center will return to its old home on South Main Street after the nonprofit used a $1.3 million community development block grant to purchase and renovate the property.

The child care center, which opened in 1978, moved into a Waterbury Center church basement after the storm dumped 6 feet of water into their prior location.

Amanda Olney, Hunger Mountain’s executive director, says construction on the new space is a few weeks away from completion. The nonprofit purchased its original building and another neighboring structure that will be joined by a connector.
