BRATTLEBORO, Vt. (WCAX) - Road crews worked Sunday to repair flood-damaged roads and homes in Brattleboro.

One resident even captured video of a car swallowed up by a sinkhole at the intersection of Akley Road and Hinesburg Road.

The flooding happened overnight.

The Brattleboro Fire Department says West Brattleboro suffered the most issues, but the downtown area also saw overrun storm drains and standing water.

Fire officials say they’re getting many calls complaining of flooded basements and washed-out roadways.
