SNEW is reporting that they will shut off power to flooded neighborhoods to protect the electrical infrastructure, prevent electrocutions and fire. South Norwalk neighborhoods along the Norwalk River, from Neptune Avenue North, and generally along Meadow Street to Woodward to South Main and East of South Main to Washington Street will be affected. Rowayton residents south of McKinley will also loose power this afternoon.
As a resident served by the electrical circuit that will come off line please be aware you are likely to loose service between 4 and 5:30 this afternoon. Restoration times cannot be estimated at this time, but it is anticipated you will be without power for at least 30 hours. Residents should be aware they will loose power to all electric service including sump pumps, phones and refrigeration. You are advised to evacuate, and the Brien McMahon high school shelter is available open.
