Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin explains how officials are responding to mass flooding

Despite being bordered on all sides by land, Vermont residents struggled with the impact of Hurricane Irene yesterday as fast-moving floods swarmed towns from Brattleboro to Woodstock and beyond.

Numerous "swift-water" rescue teams were dispatched Sunday night around the state as hundreds of roads were closed and flooding knocked homes from their foundations.

Vermont's Governor Peter Shumlin discusses the situation within the state today on American Morning today, explaining how the administration is responding to damage caused by the mass flooding.
