Flood warnings and advisories issued for Massachusetts

BOSTON — The National Weather Service issued a series of flood warnings and advisories Sunday morning as heavy rain pelted the area with additional downpours in the forecast.

In Waltham, a large sinkhole developed on Wyman Street washing out a portion of the road.  The left travel lanes on Route 128 in Westwood were closed for a time due to flooding Sunday morning, Massachusetts State Police said.

Police also closed both directions of Route 6 in Westport due to flooding. In Chelmsford, Boston Road was closed near Brian Road because of flooding, according to police. The ramp from Route 18 southbound to Route 195 in Freetown was also closed for flooding, transportation officials said.

A flood warning was issued for the North Nashua River in Fitchburg where flooding of low-lying areas along the river trapped at least two cars near an underpass on Cleghorn Street. A tow truck pulled the cars out of the flood waters.

“Between 2 and 5 inches of rain have fallen in just a few hours,” Storm Team 5 meteorologist Danielle Vollmar said.

A flood advisory was issued for eastern Massachusetts where “heavy rainfall will cause ponding of water on highways, streets and underpasses,” the weather service said.

High winds and rain overnight collapsed radio towers in Western Mass., knocking out cell phone and internet service for much of North Adams. Residents were told via a reverse 911 system to make emergency calls with their landline if necessary.


Authorities think slick road conditions played role in crash

ROCHESTER, N.H. — Rochester police said a 7-year-old girl was killed in a crash on Route 202 on Wednesday around 4:30 p.m.

According to authorities, a Chevrolet Malibu driven by Lori Weeks, 31, was traveling eastbound when she lost control and her car skidded into oncoming traffic.

The Malibu crashed into a Toyota Matrix, driven by Roberta Siderchuck, 48, in the westbound lane.

Police said Weeks and her daughter, Madison Weeks, 7, were taken to Frisbie Hospital. The daughter was transferred to Maine Medical Center where she died of her injuries.

The crash remains under investigation, but authorities said slick road conditions likely played a role in the crash.
