Possible ice jams worried officials across the state of Vermont Thursday.

Emergency crews monitored the state's waterways, with unseasonably warm temperatures and rains threatening to cause ice jams.

The fear is that rising waters will lead to flooding.

One ice jam broke up midday in the Winooski River in Montpelier.

Crews in Moretown had a similar scare.

A giant jam in the Mad River let up just as waters started rising dangerously close to the roads.
