DARIEN - Southwestern Connecticut is preparing for another round of rain as the remnants of Tropical Storm Nicole are expected to hit the area tomorrow.

Forecasts of 2-4 inches of rain in a 24-hour period are reminding Darien business owners of the devastating nor'easter in April 2007 that dumped almost 6 inches of rain in a matter of hours.

The owners say they run an even higher risk of flooding now because in January, the Department of Public Works removed the town's water pump.

Residents also complain the town has done little to prevent another disaster from happening, despite promises to improve its flood plan.

News 12 Connecticut attempted to contact the first selectman and the DPW to find out why the pump was removed, but phone calls were not returned.
