Heavy rain is expected in Vermont through Tuesday, and officials are preparing for the possibility of flooding.
Vermont Emergency Management is working with municipalities, emergency responders, and the National Guard to prepare for any problems that could occur during periods of heavy rainfall.
Officials fear that saturated soils and rivers may not be able to absorb the continuing rain. The National Weather Service says no flooding is ‘imminent’.
Lake Champlain is also nearing flood stage, and will likely continue to rise when the rains end.
