HARTFORD -- Heavy rain Tuesday brought flooding to many areas of the state. Widespread rain of 2"-5" fell, but a few localized spots ended up with 6"+. The water has receded for most of the state, but some towns are still seeing school delays, road closures, and in some cases, roads washed away.
Westport Police say there are two roads in the town that are still partially closed due to flooding. Those roads are Compo Road southbound at the railroad underpass. They also say Roseville Road is closed between Salem Road and Whitney Street.
Norwich Police said several roads were impacted by flooding:
- Otrobando Av at Wawecus St
- West Town St at Wawecus St
- West Town at Connecticut Ave
- West Town at Otrobando Ave
The roads have since been reopened.
Connecticut State Police are expected to resume a search for a possible submerged car in the Housatonic River in North Canaan.
Storm water wound up washing away a bridge on Neptune Avenue in East Haddam.
