First Selectman Rudy Marconi warns residents of possible power outages due to Nor’easter

With strong winds due to follow a soaking rain, we can expect scattered electrical outages in town late today and early tomorrow, according to First Selectman Rudy Marconi.  
 
Please stay safe. Remember that all downed power cables  may be live, even if your household power is out. Should you lose power, be sure to call in the disruption to Eversource at 800-286-2000.
 
Please keep travel to a minimum to give the Highway department and Eversource time and space to clean up.  If your neighborhood loses power,  check on your neighbors who live alone or may need help. Use battery powered lights — never candles.  If you have a generator, be sure to follow the manufacture's instructions. Generators should be run outside and away from windows and fan intakes. 
 
We’re all hoping the impact of this Nor’easter will be minor.
 
Know that your public safety organizations — fire, police, highway  and emergency management — are on alert and will be working for a quick recovery.
