As the rain picks up again after a brief lull, there’s flooding all around town.
Myrtle Avenue is closed from the Post Road to Church Lane. Greens Farms Road is shut at Center Street. Ditto Cross Highway, from Roseville to Hockanum.
Sure, we’ve had a lot of rain (and wind). But those gorgeous fall leaves are part of the problem too.
They’ve fallen everywhere. Including storm drains.
Whose responsibility is it to clear them?
So quit reading “06880.” Put on your foul weather gear. Grab a rake. Ask your kids to do the same.
Then go outside. Find the nearest storm drains. Clear them.
That’s what being a good neighbor — and a great Westporter — is all about.
PS: It goes without saying (at least, it should), but: When you see a flooded road, do not try to drive through. It may be deeper than you think!
