MIDDLETOWN, CT (WFSB) -

Tuesday’s heavy downpours caused flooding concerns in some areas of the state, especially after Monday night’s snowfall and ice.

The weather is something people across Connecticut have been talking about for days, as it felt like it was -20 degrees in some areas over the weekend, and on Tuesday temperatures went up into the 50s.

On Tuesday, some pooling was seen in places like side streets in Middletown, and it was mainly due to drains being covered up by snow.

“Every year in Middletown, I've been working here for 10 years and we always seem to get some sort of river or low lying area flooded... my house in West Hartford is always flooded like everyone’s is," said Eric Price-Glynn, who works in Middletown.

The state’s Department of Transportation crews have been out plowing snow and slush to keep catch basis clear.

It’s part of their winter snow protocol, but timely as well since heavy rain came through the state on Tuesday afternoon.

Towns and cities are responsible for local roads.

If you notice your street drains are covered in snow, you can either shovel it or call the local public works department.
