Arnold St. Reopens in Agawam After Flooding

AGAWAM FLOODINGAGAWAM (WGGB) — Arnold Street in Agawam has reopened Sunday, following heavy rains which lead to severe flooding Saturday night.

At one point, the water was so deep that a sedan became stuck, and crews had to assist in removing the car from the waters, which were more than 2 feet deep.

The DPW was on the scene throughout Sunday morning. They say that nothing malfunctioned, but the system simply can’t keep up with all the rain, and isn’t draining properly.

Nearby residents are dealing with some minor damage to their lawns, but police say none of the damage from the flooding was extensive.
