New drone photos Monday from the Washington County Sheriff's Office show the southern end of Lake Champlain is still seeing plenty of flooding.

Tim Hardy, deputy director of the county's Department of Public Safety, reported that the emergency management team is continuing its situational monitoring of the area.

A flood warning for Lake Champlain shoreline counties remains in effect, according to the National Weather Service. As of 2 p.m. Monday, the lake level was at 100.5 feet, and minor flood stage is at 100 feet. 

The National Weather Service expects the lake to continue to rise until Monday evening.
