As Gov. Jodi Rell put the Connecticut National Guard on alert, many of the rivers in the southeastern part of the state are reaching historic flood levels today, March 30th. The rivers will continue to rise for at least another day according to the National Weather Service. Roads and bridges have already been destroyed, and a parking lot of an apartment complex in Middletown has been washed away by a river overflowing.
Below are several pictures I have taken across the state of the flooding and the aftermath of the last storm two weeks ago.
Cars almost float though an underpass in Groton, Connecticut during heavy rains.
A person surveys the damage to the seawall at Seaside Park in Bridgeport from the storm that hit the coast 2 weeks ago. Below a ball field makes a great hunting ground for thousands of seagulls looking for worms.
Finally, no umbrella is too big to stay out of the rain in Hartford.
