Many streets and bridges in and around Somerville flooded during Monday morning’s thunder storms that caused traffic delays across the city.
The Somerville Police Department garage parking lot that’s located on Somerville Avenue at the rear of the public safety building was completely flooded and disabled use of the lot for most of the morning until the rains were receding.
Also flooded during the storm was the Somerville Police training and roll call area that’s located in the public safety building that was just actually remodeled during Police Chief Tom Pasquarello’s’ tenure as chief
Police officers were even seen trying to battle the heavy rains as it was happening by deploying dozens of sandbags to try to contain the flooding and rains from entering the building.
