Flood Warning Issued

The National Weather Service in Upton, N.Y. has issued a flood warning for Westport and area until 6:45 p.m. today.

An advisory said at 10:40 a.m National Weather Service radar indicated areas of heavy rain moving through the warning area. The combination of
snow melt and an additional one to two inches of rainfall through this evening will result in flooding of small streams and urban areas with poor drainage.

A flood warning means that flooding is imminent or has been reported. Stream rises will be slow and flash flooding is not expected. However, all interested parties should take necessary precautions immediately, the advisory said.

Most flood deaths occur in automobiles, according to the advisory. Never drive your vehicle into areas where the water covers the roadway. Flood waters are usually deeper than they appear. Just one foot of flowing water is powerful enough to sweep vehicles off the road.

Numerous Accidents Reported on Westport Roadways

UPDATE Snow began falling at mid-afternoon today in the Westport area, causing dozens of accidents and spin outs on town roadways and postponing scheduled evening meetings at Town Hall.

No one was reported seriously injured, but police and wreckers were kept busy responding to about 40 incidents on slick roads by mid-evening, police said. Some roads were shut down by cars either spun out or stuck in place by the slippery conditions.

A pizza deliveryman from West Haven suffered a minor hand injury when his car hit a stone wall and flipped over at about 7:15 p.m. in front of 209 North Ave. Earlier, a car plowed into a wall on Compo Road South at the entrance to Longshore Club Park, two vehicles collided near Staples High School, and others were involved in crashes on Kings Highway South and Ford Road, according to police reports.

There were also accidents reported on Bayberry Lane, Sturges Highway, Newtown Turnpike, Hermit Lane, Post Road East, Partrick Road, Saugatuck Avenue, and a car rear-ended a fire department vehicle on Church Lane near Bay Street.
