WESTPORT - A second heavy rainstorm in less than one week has many Westport residents worried about flooding.

People who live along the Saugatuck River were forced to evacuate earlier this week and spent much of the week drying out.

One person says it took 72 hours to pump more than 2 feet of water from her grandmother's basement.

The Westport Fire Department is watching the rivers right now and they are ready to respond to possible severe flooding or evacuations.
