"The forecast for March 30, 2010, called for 1 to 4 inches of rain in southern New England. As the storm moved from New Tork, the National Weather Service warned of a 'life-threatening flood'. The forecast was no exaggeration: by the time the rain stopped falling, 9.32 inches had been recorded and dozens of South County homes, businesses, roads and bridges were under water.
The Flood of 2010 paralyzed the state for days, closing Route 95 and other roads, derailing train service, shuttering schools and damaging businesses. In this full-color volume, the photographers and writers of Independent Newspapers bring you a close-up look at how the storm affected South County. The photos, including some from our readers, offer a day-by-day look at the devastation wrought by rising waters - and are accompanied by all-new text putting the event into context."
