VT Emerg. Ops 5am Update

At 5am we have downpours in Woodstock…and, like the rest of Vermont, have been warned by the National Weather Service of the potential for stream flooding…

WATERBURY, VT – This is an update from the state Emergency Operations Center. The EOC has been staffed by DEMHS and state and local partners since 7:00 p.m. Thursday night.

No issues have yet been reported to the EOC. All state roads are open and no local road closures have been reported.

Motorists are encouraged to drive appropriately for conditions and drive slowly in downpours. Ponding water can cause cars to lose control.

We will continue staffing levels at the Emergency Operations Center as long as conditions pose a potential threat to life and property.

Weather, road, and other updates are posted on the DEMHS Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/vermontemergencymanagement) and Twitter (https://twitter.com/vemvt) pages.
