NEW LONDON, Conn. (AP) - The National Weather Service is warning that heavy rain and thunderstorms could flood roads in some Connecticut shoreline communities.

A flash flood watch was in effect through late Thursday for New London, Middlesex and New Haven counties. The storms follow two weeks with little rain.

The Day reports (https://bit.ly/1O4ddCq ) that Gary Lessor, a meteorologist at the Western Connecticut State University Weather Center, says rain is expected to get steadier and heavier into the evening.

The state Department of Transportation is urging caution on Interstate 95 southbound between exits 83 and 81 in Waterford and New London. A road in Groton was shut.

Rainwater poured into an entrance of the Public Library of New London, flooding the downstairs area with up to four inches of water.
