BREAKING NEWS: Floods in Westport create significant hazards

Flash floods spread throughout the New York City and Southern Connecticut area, causing road shutdowns, down trees, home wreckage and other hazards. 

The expected rainfall rate is 0.5 to one inch in an hour. It is recommended that everyone stay inside, if possible, and avoid flooded roads. The weather will remain a threat until 7 a.m. on Saturday.

Staples students drove slowly out of school as traffic built  up on main roads. 

“Post Road was so backed up that it took me almost double the amount of time that it usually takes to get home,” Emma Booth ’24 said. “Water is building up and flowing fast.”

Ruby Kantor '24, Paper Managing Editor
Inklings Paper Managing Editor, Ruby Kantor ’24, claims she decided to join the paper for many different reasons.    “I really liked the different style[s] of writing that journalism [offered],” Kantor said when prompted with why.   “It's a great way to build new community and meet new people,” Kantor said.   However, journalism is not the only thing she’s had to tackle recently.  Over the summer, she took on the challenge and, at times, “dreaded experience” of being a children’s camp counselor.  “It was exhausting,” Kantor said with a smile, “but the kids were very cute, and it was worth it.”
