Homes near Connecticut River could be flooded due to rising water levels

Hampden County

The Connecticut River has been rising after heavy rain and snowmelt.

One South Hadley resident told 22News when the river is reaching “sky-high” like Wednesday, a lot more debris is seen on the river.

And although the rising could be good for fishers, homes near the water might face damage. 

Will Costa told 22News, “I actually have a friend that lives down there and the water is all the way up on his grass.”

The 22News Storm Team is tracking another round of wet weather, which could add to these water levels.
