Flood Warning

Vermont officials are warning of flooding potential in Montpelier due to an ice jam on the Winooski River.

The Montpelier Emergency Management Team is monitoring a significant rise in water levels of the river’s north branch by Langdon Street.

Officials say cellars of buildings along Main and Langdon streets have been flooded or are at risk of flooding.

Emergency officials warn residents and business owners not to enter basements that are flood and still have live electrical power.

Further north in Essex, police say North Williston Road and portions of Vermont Route 128 are closed due to flooding from the Winooski River.
