Flags Fly as Nation Honors 9/11 Victims

WestportNow.com Image
U.S. flags fluttered in the breeze today on the Ruth Steinkraus Cohen Bridge across the Saugatuck River in Westport as they do for many months of the year. But they took on special meaning for many passersby as the nation marked the fifth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks in which four persons with ties to Westport died. Westport hosted a 9/11 ceremony at Sherwood Island State Park last Thursday. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Phyllis Groner for WestportNow.com

Coastal Flood Problems Possible

The National Weather Service said today that swells from Hurricane Florence along with northeast winds could cause some minor coastal flooding Monday and Tuesday in the Westport and Long Island Sound area.

An afternoon statement said swells were already affecting the ocean waters.

“Although these swells will not directly impact New York Harbor, western Long Island Sound or Peconic Bay, the swells in combination with a long period of northeast winds through Tuesday night will likely cause water to pile up,” the advisory said.

It said minor coastal flooding problems will be possible during the high tide cycles Monday through Tuesday. Depending on the evolution of wind and sea conditions locally moderate coastal flooding may become a possibility, the statement said.

Mosquito Control Briquettes Available

In an effort to combat the spread of West Nile virus, the Westport Weston Health District announced today it is making available mosquito control briquettes to residents for use on stagnant water pools on their property.

Director Susan Jacozzi said residents of Westport can pick up free starter packs of the larvicide briquettes and information at the Health District office, 180 Bayberry Lane, or the Westport Town Hall (Selectman’s Office), 110 Myrtle Ave. 

“The bacterial larvicide is called Bti, which is used for mosquito larval control in a broad range of fresh and salt marsh habitats.  It uses naturally occurring bacteria and provides 30 days of protection,” Jacozzi said.

Residents are directed to use one briquette per 100 square feet of standing water.  Briquettes can be used in non-aerated ponds, pools of stagnant water, and/or wetland areas around their property.
