STAMFORD - Many homes across southwestern Connecticut have flood damage following 30 hours of heavy rain.

Crews from Servpro in Stamford say their phones have been ringing nonstop with requests to pump flood water out of homes.

They say the damage is primarily from water seepage in low-lying areas. Crews say they saw a lot of sump pump failures because pumps couldn't keep up with the amount of water.

News 12 went to one home in Darien that suffered more than $20,000 worth of damage.
