Flooding, Icy Roads and Ice Jams Causing Problems Statewide

The roads are incredibly slippery tonight, and it doesn't look like we're going to catch a break tomorrow. Icy conditions have already caused multiple crashes and slide-offs.

Icy conditions have already caused multiple crashes and slide-offs. 

These accidents happened in Irasburg, Addison, and Ferrisburgh.

Vermont State Police say hydro-planing has been an issue on 89 as well, because of all of this rain.

There's a lot of standing water between Exits 18 and 20. If you do have to travel that route, just take it slowly. 

 Frozen culverts are another problem. Neighbors on Packard Road in Jericho are quickly sand-bagging the area to prevent flooding, but already, we've heard that several basements are full.

The Fire Department is there, helping town highway officials.

Flooding could be a problem in Middlebury as well. The Otter Creek River is climbing.

All of this heavy rain and melted snow is creating high waters.

Michael Page will keep an eye on that for us and let us know if it indeed gets close to flood stage.
