Old Saybrook police say four homes and some businesses in an area north of Route 1 and Route 154 in their town flooded Thursday afternoon.

Police say beavers had built a dam which blocked a four-foot pipe.  A Department of Transportation crew removed the dam, and the water which had covered acres of water in a swampy area off Old Boston Post road poured into the neighborhood.
