BOGOTA, N.J. (AP) — Heavy rains in the New York City region and southern New England have led to flooding that required rescues of motorists and residents. The rains started Tuesday afternoon and continued through most of the night.
In Connecticut, flooding washed away roads and bridges. In Clinton, officials evacuated people along the Indian River. In Norwich, officials say two people were rescued Wednesday morning from a vehicle in a parking lot.
Officials say crews are searching for a vehicle that might be submerged in the Housatonic River in North Canaan.
Forecasters say more rain could fall in the region Wednesday.
