NORWICH, Conn. (WTNH) -- Norwich is drying out Thursday night, after pouring rainfall flooded some streets and neighborhoods.
Emergency Services confirmed that flash flooding occurred in Norwich, and more than 3 inches of rain fell in a short period of time.
Officials said numerous parking lots and streets are flooded, and in some instances people were waiting in their cars to be rescued.
The Department of Transportation said the ramp for Exit 82 on I-395 is currently closed due to flooding at the bottom of the ramp.
No injuries have been reported.
Additionally, officials said a medical complex has been evacuated.
Norwich Public Utility says in flooding situations sometimes they kill power to individual customers or transformers so there are no electrified lines, which would cause a safety hazard.
They turned off the power to eleven customers, including a medical office building at 12 Case Street, Dime Bank on West Town Street and Norwich Tire.
"It is pretty deep over there right now. Our cars are half buried," said a woman whose car was on Case Street.
The hardest hit areas were West Town Street and Case Street where dozens of cars were stranded in floodwaters four to five feet deep.
Some basements of homes were soaked with six feet of water.
Several drivers attempted to drive through the high water but got stuck, including a FedEx truck.
"I am stuck. Fortunately my son picked me up. Now we are trying to figure out how we are going to get the car out and go home," said Charlene.
