Several roads are flooded in northern Vermont today.

State police have closed Route 5 in Lyndonville and St. Johnsbury Center, Route 114 in Lyndonville, Route 36 in Fairfield, Route 118 in Montgomery, Route 100 in Eden and Route 108 in Waterville and Bakersfield. Police say the roads are covered with water.

High waters also might flood Route 105 in Sheldon and a Route 15 bridge in Cambridge.

Several side roads in Cambridge, Underhill, Fairfax, Fairfield and Eden are also flooded.

Police say drivers shouldn't try to cross flooded roads.

State of emergency
The town of Lyndon has declared a state of emergency because of flooding. Town officials say there's only one route in and out of the village of Lyndonville but they don't know how long that will stay open.

The Red Cross has set up a shelter at the Lyndon Town School.

A trailer park near the Passummpsic River has been evacuated.
