Thousands Without Power As Downed Trees, Wires, Flooding Cause Road Closures

Motorists are facing road closures Wednesday morning due to downed trees and wires and flooding following the severe storms that swept through the area late Tuesday afternoon and evening that have left thousands without power.

Traffic is moving on I-95 near the Port Chester/Greenwich border on Wednesday morning, but Tuesday's storms have led to flooding on parkways and downed tree and power lines on some area roads.
