Stamford tow truck company floods during rain, owner blames the city

STAMFORD -

Flooding created a big mess for a Stamford tow company.

Employees at East Coast Towing spent the day removing water from inside the shop Tuesday.

The Lafayette and North State Street intersection, where the company is located, also completely flooded.

The owner blamed the city for not being able to take on this amount of rain.

"It's basically a kick below the belt at this point, it's getting old and at the point where we can't deal with this anymore," says co-owner Joe Romaniello. "The drainage should be able to handle this, in a city this size"

Employees say no one was injured, despite the water being near the electrical equipment.
