(Johnston, RI) -- The federal government is getting involved in the Belfield Drive flooding situation in Johnston. Residents have been unable to drive through to Hartford Avenue from their end of the dead-end road for days because of flooding. The government is declaring Belfield a disaster area and will offer to buy two properties and let them serve as a floodplain. Officials are tracing the problem to a clogged culvert in the Pocasset River.
