10/28/2011 6:03:07 PM EST – This is the Town of Weston with a Code Red message regarding the impending weekend snow storm.
According to the Chief meteorologist for the state of CT current predictions are that a powerful storm will move into our area tomorrow morning and start off as rainfall with heavy winds. The storm will transition to a heavy wet snowfall by mid afternoon and continue until approximately 12:00 AM. The most significant hazard associated with this storm is heavy snow accumulating on the tree canopies, causing trees to fall, and damage to power lines. We are recommending that you make initial storm preparations and plan for the potential of power outages. Ensure that you have potable drinking water and battery powered flash lights. Please do not call the emergency communication center unless you are experiencing an emergency. All calls related to power outages should be directed to the CT light and Power Company. We have spoken to CL&P officials who have assured us that they have all crews on standby in anticipation of the storm and will be dispatched for repairs as soon as it is safe to do so. The Town of Weston has made all necessary preparations for the storm and will update you as necessary. Thank you for your support and cooperation.
