20 People Evacuated After Flash Flooding In Lebanon

About 20 people have been evacuated following flash flooding that washed out and damaged roads in Lebanon.

Gov. Maggie Hassan says more than 2 inches of rain fell in area between 3 p.m. and 4 p.m. Tuesday, following Monday night's flooding from heavy rains.

Tuesday's thunderstorm and flash flooding covered Slayton Hill Road with water and rocks making it impassable.

The fire chief says 20 people were evacuated from a nearby apartment complex following the evacuation of 15 people the night before.

He said about 20 roads were impassable Tuesday afternoon. An emergency shelter had been set up at the Lebanon High School for people stranded by the flood damage.
