Coastal areas see flooding; winds whipping in Westbrook

WESTBROOK, Conn. (WTNH) — Thursday’s blizzard has brought some wild conditions right to the immediate shoreline in Westbrook. News 8’s George Colli decided to demonstrate how strong the winds were Thursday afternoon by going fishing. Sounds like fun, right?

Watch George’s report in the video above.

Earlier in the day, George was at Grove Beach Point in Westbrook to take a look at what the flooding looked like at high tide. The wintry weather had some along the water concerned about coastal flooding, and the tide was higher than normal because of the super moon a few days back.
