Flooding concerns for shoreline

STONINGTON, Conn. (WTNH)– The icy, slushy conditions outside are causing some flooding concerns along the shoreline Wednesday night.

Along the shoreline there’s quite a bit of snow, at least five or six inches and with the water and the rain falling, there always is concern for flooding.

But right now we’ve seen some clear streets and no flooding. Another reason for that is these storm drains they’re clear so crews have been able to keep the snow off of them.

There may not have been school but there was plenty to do for this Stonington student.

“My brother just turned a year, my sister’s four. So I’m the only one that can really do it,” said Dylan LaPointe, Stonington.

He wasn’t the only one on Lord’s Point who was hard at work.

Lee Moran plows out a bunch of these waterfront homes.

“Like I said I do about 15 around here. Like a normal storm it will take me like three hours but this storm it seems to be taking about six. Probably it will, probably take me about six just cause it’s so heavy,” said Moran.

Entrepreneurship runs in the family. News 8 caught up with his brother Jimmy at his Wehpittituck Farm.

For him, the wet heavy snow is a cause for concern.

“You could potentially lose your plastic or even worse than that bend the whole structure,” said Jimmy Moran.

One thing Jimmy doesn’t have to worry about are the animals on the farm. The pony there just likes to stay out in the snow and the cows they have their shelter.
