Heavy Rains Make Mess for Morning Commute

Weather conditions are causing issues for drivers Tuesday morning and the rain is expected to last throughout the day.

A tree came crashing down onto a car driving on the Merritt Parkway in Greenwich Tuesday morning during heavy rains, according to Greenwich police.

The accident happened on the Merritt Parkway northbound between exits 31 and 33. No one was hurt. 

Greenwich firefighters tweeted a photo showing the heavily damaged vehicle and warned travelers to drive carefully as heavy rain and strong winds hit the area.

Two drivers had to be rescued from floodwaters in Stratford this morning, and flooding closed the exit 30 off ramp on Interstate 95 south. Stratford police said they were seeing some flooding in typical spots Tuesday morning amid heavy rains and high tide.
