Vt. Gov. urges vigilance for flooding

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) -- Gov. Peter Shumlin says it's hard to predict which parts of Vermont could be hit by possible flooding overnight so everyone needs to be alert.

The National Weather Service on Thursday issued a flood watch for most of Vermont and upstate New York that takes effect at 8 p.m. Thursday and lasts through Friday evening.

By the time the watch expires, up to 4 inches of rain could fall. Since the ground is already saturated the rain will run directly into rivers and streams.

Shumlin says Vermont, which is still recovering from Tropical Storm Irene's passage through the state almost two years ago, has learned the hard way to prepare for the worst and hope for the best.
