Sterling, Conn. (WTNH) - A Sterling brook has overflowed, washing asphalt away and leaving some residents stuck within their homes.
Sterling's James Romano says his dog houses were carried away by the raging waters.
"It took my woods cart right over across the street," Romano said.
And it knocked his shed and chicken coop off their foundations.
"The chickens drowned. They were in the box; they drowned and that was sad," said Romano.
The chickens were not the only casualties of this swollen river.
"Just the idea of seeing a fish in our driveway -- that's how high the water is," said Sterling's Joseph Anzollotti.
Surprisingly the homes are okay although some backyards are now a beach.
"Of course you can see all the erosion; see the leaves trying to come through?" said Anzollotti.
Folks around here are going to have to wait until the water recedes to assess how much damage was done.
