(Host) Cleanup continues today across central and northeastern Vermont from last week’s flash floods.

And with more rain over the weekend, Vermont Emergency Management says the saturated ground has become unstable in some areas.

So the state is warning people to be aware of the potential for mudslides. There have already been a few, including in Barre, which was hard-hit by the flash floods.

A lot of people whose homes were damaged still haven’t found a place to stay permanently.

Mark Bosma of Emergency Management says state officials want to hear from homeowners about what damage they’ve had.

(Bosma) "This particular incident probably had the greatest amount of damage to individual dwellings. And we’re asking anyone who had any damage to their home to call 211 to report that damage so that we can possibly make another request to FEMA for an individual assistance declaration."

(Host) The Small Business Administration might also help homeowners with low-interest loans.
