Flooding at campsites in NH leaves many stranded, looking for help
The flood warnings issued in New Hampshire on Saturday displaced several out of state campers and town residents in the norther part of the state.
The town of Orford opened a shelter at the Rivendall Academy after reports of severe flooding that allegedly washed out several campgrounds in the area.
According to The Red Cross, the town is providing support if necessary. As of midnight last night, there were 4 people in the shelter.
State Homeland Security and Emergency Management Director Perry Plummer is asking campground owners and operators to call 211 if they have space available to receive campers displaced by the storm.
Campers affected by the storm and looking for another site can call 211 for the most up-to-date information regarding which campsites have space available.
The Red Cross continues to monitor regional flooding and reach out to community partners to respond to the flooding in Thetford, Orford, and the surrounding communities in assessing the needs of all involved.
