The rainfall over the last two days has caused small rivers and streams to rise across the state.

One of the rivers that increased in flow and height the most was the Yantic River in the Norwich area. The area experienced between 6 to 8 inches of rainfall.

Two days ago the river was running close to a record low streamflow rate of just 5 cubic feet per second now the river is running a rate of 1240 cubic feet per second meaning the river is running 240 times faster than it was just two days ago.

The good news is that the river was indeed running so low and the river has crested therefor there is no flood threat for those who live along the river.
