Local Headlines

The heavy and constant rain yesterday caused a number of problems during the evening commute.  The Danbury Branch of Metro-North was suspended for several hours and then was running with delays because of weather-related high water issues.  Metro North at one point told commuters to seek alternate transportation options.  At least one car got stuck in the high water that flooded over Main Street in Danbury by Elmwood Park before that part of the roadway was closed.  Flooded roadways were also reported in Bethel, Easton and in Ridgefield.  Police from several towns cautioned motorists to never drive through water if you can't tell how deep it is.  In Stamford, firefighters used a boat to rescue kids from a flooded school bus.
