Orleans VT-Franklin VT-
225 PM EST WED FEB 21 2018

The National Weather Service in Burlington has issued a

* Flood Warning for...
An Ice Jam Accompanied By Rain And Snowmelt in...
Northwestern Orleans County in northeastern Vermont...
Northern Franklin County in northwestern Vermont...

* Until 215 AM EST Thursday

* At 218 PM EST, Emergency Management is reporting water approaching
the road on RT 78 in the normal flood zone west of the town.
Residents in areas that were impacted by the January flood should
be on alert for any changes in the river and are advised to follow
local law enforcement instructions. Numerous ice jams are in place
along the Missisquoi and local field flooding will be possible all
the way upstream to North Troy. Addition flooding will be possible
along Route 105 between Sheldon Springs and East Berkshire due to
ice jams.

* 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...
Enosburg Falls, Swanton, Jay In Franklin County, Swanton Village,
North Troy Village, Highgate Falls, Montgomery Center, Enosburg
Falls Village, Sheldon, Troy, Enosburg, Montgomery, Jay, Westfield,
Berkshire, Highgate, Richford, Franklin, North Troy and Sheldon
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.

Arrowhead Lake and a combination of backwater and snowmelt is
causing water levels to rise along the Lamoille. Local reports

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.

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.
