Naugatuck continues flood cleanup after heavy storms
NAUGATUCK -- Naugatuck is cleaning up after a thunderstorm dumped heavy rainfall that flooded streets and caused evacuation of two apartment buildings.
Gov. Dannel P. Malloy visited the town Wednesday evening to tour damage with Mayor Robert Mazzo, who declared a state of emergency at 4 p.m. because of widespread street flooding.
Mazzo said in a blog post Wednesday evening that most roads are now passable but some streets weren't fully open because of pavement damage and debris removal. A travel advisory remained in effect in town.
The mayor's blog said more than 5 inches of rain was unofficially reported.
The Naugatuck senior center was opened as a shelter for people who had to leave the apartments. No injuries have been reported.
The Red Cross says residents of 50 apartments have been affected by the flooding.
