NH dealing with some flooding, overnight storm

Posted: Updated:

LEBANON, N.H. (AP) - Some roads in New Hampshire are flooded due to a combination of melting snow and rain, and an overnight storm that brought some light snow and ice has delayed some school openings.

WMUR-TV reports Interstate 93 exit 25 southbound in Holderness was closed due to the flooding.

Sand bags were being stacked in Lebanon to guard against the Mascoma and Connecticut rivers. Businesses said they've been cautious since Tropical Storm Irene caused flooding and property loss in the area in 2011.

Many rivers and streams across central and northern New Hampshire are above flood levels, but some are receding.

The storm was moving out of New Hampshire, but temperatures weren't expected to get out of the 40s. Lows Wednesday night were expected to get in the 20s and teens.
