An evacuation center opened in Chester, Vt. Monday evening to help people displaced by flooding.

The Red Cross says just a few residents used the center Monday evening after flooding from heavy rains caused several road washouts. Some homes were also affected by the flooding.  

One person saw their home possibly destroyed by the high waters, according to Red Cross officials.

The center closed at around 10:30 p.m. after people were able to return to their homes, safely.
