Floodwaters have receded, but most rivers and streams remain above normal levels, and some are still dangerous in many areas. Vermont officials recommend staying away from rivers that are still high and flowing rapidly. You should stay out of all floodwaters because of pollutants or debris.
Motorists are still encouraged to stay off roadways as many are unsafe and what roads are open are needed by emergency responders, road crews, and utility crews.
Road closures are still too numerous to list. Please call 511 or visit www.511vt.com for updated road closures. The public is asked to NOT call 211 for road closures ““ those calls are hampering 211’s ability to help those who need shelter or other resources.
State Police also ask that you only call 911 if you have an emergency.
Before returning to your flooded home, you must have a licensed electrician inspect your electrical system. Wet wiring can cause electrocution.
