Snowstorm Blankets Westport, Causes Some Flooding

Westport missed the heaviest snowfall amounts as an intense winter storm blanketed the Northeast today. Some shoreline roads were flooded as the area saw periods of near blizzard conditions.

Unofficial measurement of Westport snowfall amounts ranged from 16 to 19 inches. New York City measured a record snowfall of 26.9 inches in Central Park, the highest tally since records started being kept in 1869.

Westport’s Public Works Department deployed all its 17 vehicles and called in private contractors to help clear its 123 miles of roadways as well as parking lots at schools and train stations.

“We came through it relatively unscathed,” said Westport First Selectman Gordon Joseloff, who toured the town in the fire command vehicle and later spent several hours on a Westport snowplow.

“Downtown Rocky” Scrambling Before Storm?

WestportNow.com Image
WestportNow contributing photographer Ron Malone caught “Downtown Rocky Raccoon” hurrying around downtown in what he says was “obvious anticipation of a storm.”  The animal is familiar to many early risers in the area, according to Ron, as he makes predawn predations on dumpsters. He is pictured climbing over a fence around Veterans Green which Ron says he usually goes around. “It’s assumed,” messaged Ron, “that he was in a hurry to get back to the Town Hall area where he nests.” (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Ron Malone for WestportNow.com

Westport Prepares for Snowstorm

Westport’s Department of Public Works (DPW) spent today preparing for a major weekend snowstorm but hoped the forecast might turn into another “false alarm.”

Public Works Director Steve Edwards said that weather forecasts he had seen for the area varied from light snow to blizzard conditions.

An afternoon weather advisory from the National Weather Service forecast 6 to 12 inches with the highest totals most likely to occur across eastern portions of Long Island and southeast Connecticut.

DPW has coordinated with town contractors and have been assured of their availability and level of preparation, Edwards said.
