GREENWICH - Greenwich officials say the town narrowly escaped widespread flooding Tuesday after a heavy rainstorm hit the area.

The Byram River was 4 feet above normal Tuesday morning, but the water level never rose above a yellow line painted along the dam to alert officials of overflow.

The Greenwich emergency management director says crews were out around the town clearing storm drains, keeping track of localized flooding and monitoring changes in weather and water levels.
