Heavy rains soaking Addison County

Flash flooding has caused a number of road closures, and reduced many roads to one lane. Notable among them is Route 116 in Bristol south of the one-way bridge. There are a number of other affected roads throughout Addison County in particular, as well as other areas of the state.

Motorists this morning and always should be reminded to always heed road closures and never drive across a flooded road.

Route 100 near Warren also has experienced flooding.

There are currently just over 3,000 power outages statewide.

A number of trees have fallen in high winds, some across roads; again, please heed road closures and all detours.

Motorists should once again drive with caution as water could pool up on highways and cause drivers to lose control of their car.

This is all based on what has been reported to Vermont Emergency Management. It is likely there are more problems for individual communities throughout the state.

At any time, the public can call 211 for emergency resource information. 211 is a service of the United Way.

Media can call the Vermont Emergency Management Public Information Office at 800-347-0488.
