10/31/2011 5:48:22 PM EST – This is a Code Red update for the Town of Weston on Monday, October 31 at 6 pm.
CL&P still has not given us restoration estimates, but they have begun the restoration process. Additional crews have finally arrived in Connecticut, and we are anticipating at least an additional 4 line crews tomorrow. All Weston roads are currently passable, but caution is advised due to continued road obstructions and the potential for falling branches. The emergency shelter and comfort station located at the rear entrance of the Weston Middle School will remain open. Please bring your own bedding, towels and toiletries. Town Hall will be open tomorrow from 9 until 5 pm, the Senior Center will be open from 9-2, and the library will remain open until 5 for internet access and charging capabilities. The High School library will be open tomorrow 8am-4-pm, and movies will run in the HS auditorium throughout the day.
Following discussions with the Police Department, and in order to provide a safe environment for Trick or Treating, we are postponing Halloween activities until Saturday, November 5th. Please do not allow your children to trick or treat, as many of our streets may still be without power and have downed power lines, making conditions unsafe.
Weston’s AT&T storm line is currently out of service, so please call 203-222-2591 for updated recorded information. Our website, http://www.westonct.gov and facebook page will be updated as we receive additional information from CL&P.
P.S. Schools are closed tomorrow and Wednesday.
