Last Halloween was not a great one for Chelsie Lent. A bad storm blew across New Hampshire, flooding part of a campground she owns in Warren, along the Baker River.
The water swept away campfire rings, knocked picnic tables across the property, destroyed a road and bath house, and dropped all kinds of debris, she said.
It was symptomatic of a changing climate here.
Scientists say New Hampshire is seeing more frequent heavy storms, powerful rain and snow events that are overwhelming stream banks and drainage systems.
