BRIDGEPORT - Bridgeport residents cleaned up today after Tropical Storm Andrea left parts of Connecticut flooded.

The region was soaked in Friday's downpour, and some vehicles were unable to move after they tried to drive through floodwaters.

Some residents found their basements flooded, and one home filled with about 8 inches of water. Residents and city leaders say that Bridgeport's sewage pipes are outdated and in need of an upgrade.

Bridgeport police say they did not receive any reports of damage or power outages.
