Last night, our local area saw some serious weather damage. With the remnants of Hurricane Ida, there was a ton of serious flooding, power outages, and trees and power lines down.

There are multiple school closures all around, and some of our main roads are still closed due to flooding. Danbury Mayor Joe Cavo sent out a note this morning that "urban and small stream flooding will continue for several hours after the rain tapers off. If you absolutely have to travel this morning, you may experience numerous detours causing traffic disruption."

Emergency crews were out all night and this morning to take care of our local roads. Check out some of the photos and videos listeners sent in from what they experienced around their area.

Vacant Putnam Lake Properties

Putnam Lake is a Hamlet of the Town of Patterson In Putnam County, NY. Originally, the community was a vacation getaway for city folks who wanted Lake property in the country. Today, it’s not any kind of weekend or destination getaway but a great place to live, I would know, I grew up there. Like any small town, Putnam Lake, NY has its setbacks.
