If you were in Bridgeport Wednesday you probably had to slow down on the roads. That's because most parking lots and streets had a couple inches of water on them.
Most of the areas that had this were close to some sort of water source. Many residents in the Hall Valley Apartments woke up to water in the parking lot after the nearby pond overflowed. But it could have been a lot worse if it wasn't for a man made trench that protects the neighborhood from flooding. And remember if there's water on the road you never know how deep it could be, so take another route if you can and slow down.
"You don't know if the roadway is washed out. There could be a hole there where you could sink into. Or it could wash you down stream. So it's very important not to cross the water and turn around to find another way to go," said Chief Chuck Feathers, Bridgeport Fire Department.
Chief Feathers said if you live near a body of water it's a good idea to get a sump pump for your basement to get rid of some water if it does get into your house.
