Rainy weather continues all across Norwalk, Darien, and Westport

The Westport fire chief says they are ready

The Westport fire chief says they are ready and prepared if they have to close any roads due to flooding.

NORWALK - The wet and rainy weather has some people in Southwestern Connecticut singing the blues.

The Westport fire chief says they are ready and prepared if they have to close any roads due to flooding.

The water on the Saugatuck River was up to about 4 and half feet early Wednesday evening. The Westport fire chief says they start to get a little worried when they see 6 or 7 feet.

The United States Geological Survey installed a water gauge on the Ruth Steinkraus Cohen Bridge this winter. 

It sends text alerts to the city when the water reaches a certain height. On Tuesday, the city had to close the bridge because the water was too high.
