Greater Danbury area police and firefighters are prepared to respond to the effects of Tropical Storm Elsa.
There was some flash flooding in the region yesterday as heavy rain fell across the area in the afternoon. Danbury reported at least one car getting stranded and evacuated near the West Street overpass. Several buildings had water in basements, including at the Danbury police station.
Bethel First Selectman Matt Knickerbocker sent out a robocall to residents urging them to be prepared as well. He doesn't think the storm will be as bad as others.
HART Service to Danbury Fair Mall at the Carousel mall entrance bus stop is suspended due to flooding. Buses are detoured to the mall entrance between Macy’s and LL Bean.
