Common natural disasters in Vermont include severe storms, floods, winter storms, hurricanes, landslides, power outages, and tropical storms. Very rarely do tornadoes, earthquakes, wildfires, and droughts occur in Vermont but they can happen. Vermont endures intense storms in the form of severe thunderstorms and lighting, heavy rains, large hail, and gusty winds. Thunderstorms can happen year-round, but normally occur during spring and summer months. Lightening and hail can accompany server storms, resulting in possible greater damage to local and personal property.  Many streams and rivers crisscross the state and make Vermont highly susceptible to river floods and flash flooding. These floods are generally caused by periods of heavy rain, quick thaws, fast snowmelt, and overly saturated soil. Vermont is vulnerable to ice storms, blizzards, and heavy snow. The winter months are long and cold, generally in December and January. Vermont receives over 86 inches of snow annually, which is almost three times more than the national average. Although Vermont is not a coastal state, it does still experience the effects of Atlantic storms. Hurricanes and nor’easters can occur and have the potential to cause major destruction.
