Heavy downpours flood streets in several communities

Posted: Updated:

Severe downpours left some areas in many Connecticut communities partially flooded, officials say.

The rainstorm swept in Sunday and lasted several hours throughout the morning and afternoon.

The National Weather Service has issued a coastal flood advisory for both Monday and Tuesday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Servpro says they responded to 12 calls across Fairfield county during the storm; mostly for flooded basements.  

Department of Transportation cameras in Stratford on Sunday, captured a motorist stranded in several inches of water near the I-95 exit 30 off-ramp.

Bridgeport also saw heavy rainfall but drivers luckily didn't get stuck in the floodwaters.

Stamford drivers weren't as lucky and some cars stalled in floodwaters underneath a bridge near East Main Street and Myrtle Avenue.

It's much drier Monday but rain is expected later in the week and could damper holiday spirits on Halloween.
