Flash flooding continues to damage Middletown wall


The brown stone wall along the Connecticut river in Middletown that has been collapsing since the summer. The flash flooding Tuesday caused the Connecticut River to damage another 50 feet of the bank in Harbor Park. 

The big brown stones have protected Middletown from the Connecticut river since the colonial times, but now state and federal engineers are trying to figure out how to stop the damage and rebuild it. 

The good news is Middletown has only had to close a small section of the north end of Harbor Park. The issues are not affecting Route 9.
