Proctor Update 9/6



As of September 5th it looks like all roads are currently back open in Proctor. The area down by Gorham Bridge road is safe to travel although you can still see a lot of flooded and destroyed fields. The housing on Elm & Willow Streets is free of water although they look like they received a lot of damage to their homes and goods as there were piles of household goods for trash and other piles of furniture and goods needing to be dried out.

The Otter Creek seems to be currently contained within its banks as it runs through Proctor and under the marble bridge. Route 3, although clear of water, still has lots of dirt and sand remnants on the shoulder throughout much of the stretch from Rutland to Proctor. The Proctor youth fields where 2 of the 3 fields and the snack shack were underwater is also free of flooding. It will be a challenge to the grounds crew to get the fields back up to par for baseball and softball next year. Part of Proctor lost electricity around 7pm during the tropical storm but power was restored to all by the following Monday around 2pm and so far no more problems have occurred.
