Flooding and Freezing Causing Problems

Flooding problems persist in parts of the state after heavy rain fell on Thursday.

Two cars were abandoned after becoming stuck in waist-deep icy floodwaters at the intersection of Love Lane and Vine Street in Hartford overnight.

The intersection is closed until the water recedes and the vehicles can be safely removed from the roadway, according to police.

Riverside Road in Simsbury is closed between Drake Hill Road and East Weatogue Street and Terry’s Plain Rd are closed due to flooding.

Route 25 in Monroe is closed between Pepper Street and Old Newtown Road because of flooding.

Flooding also affected all CTrail Hartford line trains between Hartford and Springfield and CTrail Amtrak trains between Windsor Locks and Springfield. Rail line service has since been restored.
