Schaghticoke Road in Kent has washed out north of the intersection with Bulls Bridge Road where the water fall comes off the hill.  That prompted a road closure.  There are also trees down on wires on Schaghticoke near Macedonia Road, though it didn't cause a blockage.  Kent Emergency Management officials are asking that motorists leave extra time for travel throughout the day as additional flooding and road closures may occur.

In New Milford, some ball fields at Helen Marx Park are underwater.

The remnants of Ida packed a punch in Redding and some residents woke up to power outages around town. Trees, wires, and electrical fires were reported by Eversource as the causes. Drivers are reminded to assume any downed wires are live and to keep and eye out for downed wires and tree branches. About 25-percent of the town was without power this morning. Eversource crews from New Hampshire came into Connecticut last night to aid in the cleanup effort.

In Danbury, flooding was reported around several sides of the Mall complex.

Ridgefield was among the school districts to close today due to flooding issues along bus routes.  First Selectman Rudy Marconi says Ridgefield residents experiencing water in their basements should use caution, and call the Ridgefield Fire Department non-emergency line (203-431-2724) for safety instructions on how to proceed, especially if water reaches electrical sources.
