SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. -

Rain continues to be a factor in our region. And while the weather is expected to quiet down Saturday evening, the likelihood of flooding is continuing.

South Burlington police are advising motorists to avoid the area of Cheesefactory Road between Hinesburg Road and Dorset Street. Water levels are very high over the roadway.

Heavy downpours this afternoon quickly turned the Shaw's parking in South Burlington into a lake. A layer of water was also slowing traffic in Burlington-- including Riverside Avenue and Main Street. Similar flooding on roads has also been reported in Essex however, as of Saturday evening, no major damage or washouts have been reported. Drivers are encouraged to be cautious when driving in the rain and never drive through a flooded road.
