WARREN, Mass. (WWLP) - Mass DOT is repairing Route 67, Main Street, in West Warren after flood waters damaged part of the road Friday morning.
Matt Rapisarda, who lives along the road, told 22News they are once again cleaning up water from their front yards. He says it's the second time in two weeks the rain has caused them problems, and even that wasn't the first time.
"It's not something you can get used to, I'll tell you that. You know, it happened back in 2005 and we didn't expect it would happen that fast again, so now everyone's kind of living on the edge now, you know?" Rapisarda said.
Warren Police Sgt. Joe Laflower says he thinks a nearby beaver dam may have broken due to all the rain we've had lately.
He says its expensive to continue repairing the road, and they hope the state can come up with a more permanent fix.
Worcester County (where Warren is located) as well as all of the Pioneer Valley were under flood watch into the afternoon hours on Friday, even after the rain stopped and the sun came out.
