National Weather Service warns of flash floods

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood warning for most of Connecticut as a days-long rain storm soaks the state.

Flooding closed several roads in Norwich on Sunday as the National Weather Service reports some areas in southeastern Connecticut received 2 inches of rain in three hours.

One road washed away and another road was closed.

Emergency management director Gene Arters says Route 12 and a local street were flooded with as much as 2 feet of water. He says an emergency shelter has opened at Kelly Middle School for residents who need to leave their homes.
