BOSTON - As Tropical Storm Irene churned up the eastern seaboard it left many of New England's coastal states relatively unscathed while inflicting some of the worst damage on landlocked Vermont, where severe flooding was a grave concern.

Vermont, the furthest west of the New England states, is also one of the greenest, filled with waterways that contribute to its lush scenery. Those waterways are now overflowing, prompting hundreds of evacuations.

Some 40,000 to 50,000 people were without power.
