Here are doppler estimated rainfall totals from Wednesday's slow moving storms. The red shading is 3.5"-4.0". 5.0" in the pink shading right over Naugatuck! When that much rain falls from the sky in a matter of 1-3 hours, the liquid has no where to go. The rain overloads small streams, rivers, the ground, storm drains. The result was a nasty flash flooding situation that prompted evacuations and turned roads into rivers. Wishing everyone in Naugatuck the best as they clean up the mess.
