Sunday floods — Can't get there from here


The overnight deluge has left some streets impassable.

Hope Street in Bristol is blocked alongside the harbor at the corner of Washington Street with water well over a foot deep. Drainage from the marsh by Guiteras Field is hampered by the fact that the harbor tide is considerably higher than usual.

Also blocked is Chestnut Street by the cemetery.
