More Rain, Flooding Not As Bad

It has been a rough week for CT rivers with the 5th worst flooding on record for the Housatonic on Monday/Tuesday. Flood Warnings are still posted for almost every county in the state.

There is still minor flooding along a lot of rivers, but the flooding is minor-moderate this time and NOT major. We didn't have rainfall totals that were as impressive or as much snow to melt.
Western CT saw the highest rainfall totals with over 2" of rain in parts of Litchfield and Fairfield Counties. That's where we find the highest rivers.

There is moderate flooding (as of 6:30 PM Friday) for:
The Housatonic River at Gaylordsville

There is minor flooding for:
The Housatonic River at Stevenson Dam
