As utility crews are making sure floodwaters don't make it into local homes, a handful of residents are already dealing with water in their homes.
People with homes in low-lying areas are racing in an attempt to prevent further damage from flooding.
"Last night, around 8 o'clock, we noticed there was a little spot on the floor," said homeowner Meagan Sullivan. "We noticed about 4 inches of standing water in our basement."
Sullivan said this is the first time floodwaters ever made into her Windsor home since she moved in three years ago.
"Ground's frozen, it can't take any more water. The snow starts melting, (and) the water will find the path of least resistance and it's generally straight into your basement," said Jason Schmitt, estimator for Aquire Restoration.
With spring showers still weeks away, Schmitt said it's a little early for crews to be dealing with projects around the clock. But when it comes to preventing further damage, time runs as quickly as water.
"Generally, you have around 72 hours before fungal growth will start growing," Schmitt said. "Carpet delamination is another issue. If it sits in water a long time, the backing will come off and you cannot re-stretch that carpet at that point."
"I don't want to get any mold," Sullivan said. "I want to try to save the carpet. It's brand new carpet."
Experts are reminding homeowners to make sure gutters are clear, make sure downspouts are clear, and check the ends of those downspouts to make sure the water is draining away from the home.
