MIDDLETOWN, Conn. (WTNH) — Heavy rainfall caused serious problems in Middletown including one of the city’s schools.
Flooding took place in Woodrow Wilson Middle School, on Hunting Hill Avenue in Middletown.
Mayor Drew said the water was so heavy.
Water was so heavy that it flooded WWMS through the HVAC system. Our dispatch center antenna was hit by lightning. We have crews out making repairs to everything now. The antenna is fine (because they’re designed to withstand direct hits) and the school system is bringing in a cleaning crew tonight to clear water so we don’t get mold.
Students are expected to return to school for the first day of classes on September 1st.
