Emergency crews prepare for more rain following flooding
Emergency crews in Western Connecticut were prepping should the area see more heavy rainfall following Tuesday's flooding.
Crews worked to save two drivers stranded on flooded roads Tuesday, one of which was stuck in two feet of water on Surf Avenue under the I-95 underpass.
News 12 is told crews rescued a man who was stuck under a railroad overpass. Everyone made it out OK.
The National Weather Service says half of reported flooding deaths occur from cars driving into floodwaters. The site says six inches of water is enough to knock over an adult and that 12 inches can easily carry away a small car.
Officials say that people should never drive into standing water.
With more rain on the way, fire and police departments across Western Connecticut say they will be monitoring flood-prone areas as well as water levels at beaches.
