Widespread Flooding

The majority of counties in Vermont are still under a flood warning today as rivers remain above flood stage. The Burlington Free Press reports that the rain today will not make the flooding any worse around Vermont, but it will slow the rate that rivers recede. Most rivers began to recede yesterday, except for the Otter Creek in Central Rutland County. The National Weather Service reports that it could reach 8.9 feet today, flood level is 8 feet.

Lake Champlain is just about at flood stage- 100 feet above sea level. The water level Tuesday afternoon was 99.6 feet.
