Heavy rain floods parts of Hampden, Hampshire counties

Hampden County

WESTFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Drivers in several parts of western Massachusetts dealt with flooded roads Thursday night as heavy rain continued across the region.

A 22News crew on Mill Street in Westfield captured video of several cars risk driving through high waters near the Crane Pond. The city’s Emergency Management urged drivers to be cautious of the street flooding.

In Chicopee, street flooding was reported on Meeting House Road and Montgomery Street with cars stuck. West Springfield saw heavy flooding on Piper Cross Road. Experts say it’s never a good idea to drive through a flooded street as it can be dangerous for occupants in the vehicle and hazardous to your vehicle. 

Remember, go slow, turn around, and don’t drown.
