Watches & Warnings

Areal Flood Warning
Issued: 2:45 PM EST Feb. 21, 2018 – National Weather Service

The National Weather Service in Burlington has issued a

* Flood Warning for...
an ice jam accompanied by rain and snowmelt in...
west central LaMoille County in northwestern Vermont...
northeastern Chittenden County in northwestern Vermont...
south central Franklin County in northwestern Vermont...

* until 845 PM EST Wednesday

* at 240 PM EST, a large ice jam has formed just upstream of
Arrowhead Lake and a combination of backwater and snowmelt is
causing water levels to rise along the LaMoille. Local reports
indicate that water is close to reaching the bottom of the wrong
way bridge in Cambridge. Additional flooding will be possible in
the Village of Johnson as ice is moving down the gihon and will
jam in the LaMoille at the previous jam site from the January
flood.

* Ice jams are very unpredictable and can break up, move and jam
again very quickly. Water backing up behind the jam is the main
flood threat, and can flood areas under deep water with
surprising speed. Favored ice jam locations are where a river
bends or slows, at bridge abutments, or Near Islands, sand bars,
and other obstructions to river flow.

* Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Johnson Village, Johnson, Jeffersonville Village, Cambridge,
Cambridge Village, Westford, Fairfax, Milton, Fletcher, Georgia,
Jeffersonville, East Georgia, East Johnson and Cambridge Junction.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

River levels may fluctuate rapidly due to ice with little or no
warning. Residents in low lying flood prone areas should remain alert
for possible flooding due to ice jams. Ice jam flooding can be very
localized and not affect all locations along the river as in a
typical river flood.

Areal Flood Watch
Issued: 2:46 PM EST Feb. 21, 2018 – National Weather Service

... Flood Watch now in effect through Thursday morning...

The Flood Watch is now in effect for

* all of central and northern Vermont as well as portions of
northern New York, including the Saint Lawrence River valley.

* Through Thursday morning.

* Rapid snow melt and river ice breakup will continue the threat
for localized ice jam related flooding overnight.

* Areas where ice jams remain in place from the mid-January thaw
will be the most susceptible to flooding. Some of these rivers
include but are not limited to the following: the little Salmon,
St regis, Saranac, great Chazy, ausable, LaMoille, missisquoi,
Winooski, and Passumpsic.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.
