Irene’s death tol jumps to 37 people

From North Carolina to Maine, communities clearu'd up and took stock of th(* uneven and hard-to-predi( t costs of a storm that spared the nation's biggest cit\ a nightmare scenario, onK to deliver a historii wallop to towns well inland.
In New York ('ity, where people had brac ed for a disaster-movie scene of water swirling around sky-s( rapt'rs, the subw.iys and buses were u|) and running again in timc' for the Mon-
day morning commute. And to the surfirise of many New' Yorkers, things went prc'tty smoothly.
But in New Fngland, landlocked Vermont contended with what its j^over-nor called the worst flooding in a c(*ntury. Streams also raged out (.»f control in upstate New York. In many cases, the moment of maximum danger arrivc'd well after the storm had [)assed, as rainwater made its way into rivers and streams and furnc'd them into torrents. Irene dum[)ed uf) to 1 1 inches of rain on Vt'rmont and more than 13 in [>arts of Nc‘w York.
"We were exf)ecting heavy rains," said Bobbi-lean jeun of Clarksville, N.Y. "VVe wc'ren't ex(K*cting devaslation. 11 looks like somebody sc't a bomb off."
