The heavy rains that fell on the Fourth of July are now a memory and Hurricane Arthur has moved on.

The torrential rains flooded roads in some parts of Connecticut while numerous trees and power lines feel knocking power out to thousands in the state. Rains also made people change their Fourth of July plans, and postponed fireworks in many places. 

Which communities were hit hardest? 

New London County hit the jackpot for most rainfall from the Fourth storm with 1.82 inches of rain. Middlesex County finished a close second with 1.42 inches.

Power still remains out for 1,400 Connecticut Light & Power customers including 900 in Glastonbury. Only 42 people are without power who are United Illuminating Co. customers including 31 in East Haven. 

Note: The National Weather Service did not include the information for every community, but provided the totals for some of the hardest hit areas.

Seriously Brian McCready? This is your idea of journalism? Is this the kind of hard hitting article you dreamed about writing when you went to J School? The Patch...where journalism goes to die.
