A storm surge in Indian Neck has caused severe flooding with more than calf-deep water stretching up many of the side roads. Check out these photos by Branford Patch Editor Nicole Ball to see how far the water has reached so far.
Indian Neck Company 9 reported they responded to more than 30 calls from 3 a.m. until this afternoon.
As the water receded, the State Highway Department was moving the sand from Route 146, by pay-loader, back onto the beach in front of Waverly and Crouch roads. The local Public Works Department was clearing the local streets.
Company 9 also reported a large section of Linden Avenue past Bayberry lane was completely destroyed in the surge. Over on 146, the Jersey barriers were lifted and placed across the street by the high tide, which coincided with the brunt of the storm. See photos for more details of the events.
No one was injured but authorities are urging residents to stay indoors as down powerlines can come back on and become very dangerous.
