    Several streets in New Haven, Connecticut flooded on Friday, stranding vehicles.

    The rain flooded Union Avenue and the New Haven Fire Department is responding to the Interstate 95 overpass at Boulevard and Kimberly for a car that's in the water.

    Earlier, state police had to close the ramp from Route 34 to Interstate 95 north in New Haven because of flooding.

    Police said the flooding had no impact on staffing or response time.

    The rain also caused flooding at Water Street and Meadow. One woman had to carry a suitcase under her arm as she waded down the flooded road after getting out of a taxi.

    The National Weather Service has issued several flood advisories and a flash flood warning is in effect for New Haven County. A flood advisory has been issued for Litchfield County until 3:30 p.m.
