NORWALK - Homeowners in Norwalk struggled to keep their homes dry Tuesday after a heavy rainstorm caused flooding in the area.

Residents who live near the Silvermine River say it is usually about 10 feet wide, but grew much wider during the storm. Some people in the area say the heavy rains, saturated grounds and hills caused water to come rushing into their neighborhoods.

Firefighters and SERVPRO crews worked throughout the day to help residents pump water out of their homes to prevent extensive damage.
