STAMFORD - Stamford residents who live along the Mill River coped with flooding Tuesday as another heavy rainstorm caused the river to rise and pick up speed.

Some people who live near the river say their homes and yards flooded with about one and a half feet of water after the river surged over its bank.

Stamford city officials say no residents had to be evacuated, but the river levels mimicked those seen during the nor'easter that hit the region earlier this month.
