MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — A year after catastrophic flooding inundated parts of Vermont, some homeowners are still in the throes of recovery. Lisa Edson Neveu and her two teenaged sons live in their gutted, flood-wracked Montpelier home, with torn-out walls and floors and a missing ceiling. Their kitchen was destroyed so they cook meals on an outdoor grill, an electric frying pan or an air fryer. She says the flood was terrible but what’s been really traumatic is how awful the last year has been, battling with insurance companies,  adjusters, the city, state and Federal Emergency Management Agency. The family is in limbo while the city determines which houses it can elevate and when.
