Vermont Emergency Management officials and others are going to be talking with local officials about the potential dangers of spring flooding.

The meetings that will be held by The Vermont Division of Emergency Management and Homeland Security next month are to update city and town officials on local flood outlook. They will also review the state resources that are available before, during, and after a flooding event or other disaster.

Presentations will be given by experts from the National Weather Service, Agency of Transportation and Natural Resources.

This is the second year emergency officials have hosted such meetings.

The meetings will be held March 9-16 at different locations across the state.
