The National Weather Service re-issued several flood warnings overnight as heavy rain continued across the state.
Flood warnings were issued for the Still River in Fairfield County, the Housatonic River in Litchfield County, the Connecticut River in Hartford and Middlesex counties and also the Park River in Hartford County.
For those living along rivers and streams, all they can do it just watch and hope for the best.
"We've been through this before," said Michael Walker, of Shelton. "We're pretty used to dealing wit this."
River levels are expected to continue to rise until later Friday or Saturday, and some flood warnings continue until Sunday.
"My basement will occasionally get water in it, and it's a lost easier to hose down a basement than tearing down a first floor living space," said Lisa Roshkind, of Shelton.
The Lake McDonough Recreation Area in Barkhamsted remains closed, due to beach flooding.
Flooding closes state roads
Signs were posted along Route 17A in Portland letting driver know about rising water on the road, but some drivers tried to drive through it anyway.
The road has since been closed.
Route 148 in the area of Route 82 in East Haddam was also closed due to the road being flooded. It was unclear when the road would reopen.
Emergency work is being done on the eastbound lanes of Route 140 near Route 191 in East Windsor after damage caused by flooding. The work is expected to take a bout a week to complete and while that occurs, the westbound side of the road will remain open.
Route 315 in Simsbury is also closed due to flooding and expected to remain closed for the next 24 hours.
