Dozens of residents in southern Vermont are being evacuated due to an ice jam on the Whetstone Brook.
According to the Brattleboro Fire Department, about 50-75 residents of West Brattleboro are being moved to higher ground over fears that the ice jam may break, sending a rush of water towards those living nearby.
The evacuations involve two trailer parks, and Melrose Terrace, a senior housing complex near the brook.
Significant flooding has already been reported on Route 9 in that area.
In nearby Arlington, Vermont, the heavy rain triggered a mudslide that emergency managers said partially blocked Route 7A in Bennington County.
