Vermont Prepared For Irene 11 months Before It Struck
ohyeah

Sep. 25, 2011

The hurricane was moving up the East Coast, its sights set on Vermont. Forecasters were worried. It looked like the storm would unleash wind, torrential rain and catastrophic flooding on the Green Mountain State.

This wasnít Hurricane Irene, which indeed caused a devastating Aug. 28 Vermont flood. It was instead Hurricane Zachary, a fictitious storm meteorologists unleashed on Vermont during an extensive disaster preparedness test conducted 11 months before Irene.

Hurricane Zachary was eerily similar to Irene. It took almost the same path as Irene, and deposited about as much rain on Vermont as Irene did. Though Zachary was just a product of a meteorologistís expertise and imagination, it served as a practice run for the flooding of Irene, which was all too real for the thousands of Vermonters affected by the storm.

The disaster drill drew more than 700 people who reacted to developments during Hurricane Zachary in real time on Sept. 24 and 25, 2010.
