Marpe Issues Storm Statement

Westport First Selectman Jim Marpe today issued the following statement on the storm:

A blizzard warning is in effect throughout Connecticut and is anticipated to heavily impact the area tonight through Tuesday. Safety is the utmost priority. If there is a power outage, repairs will be made when it is safe to do so. At the height of the storm, due to high winds and potential for impassable roads, CL&P will not send linemen to repair downed wires until it is safe to do so. 

There are several factors that make this storm dangerous:

- Expected snow accumulations of 18-24 inches will make driving extremely dangerous, including possible whiteout conditions, tonight and into early Wednesday morning. Governor Malloy has announced that a travel ban for all roads is in effect beginning at 9 p.m.

NWS: Back to 20-30 Inch Possible Snow Accumulation

The National Weather Service in a mid-day update to its Blizzard Warning for Westport and area again revised its possible storm snow accumulation to 20 to 30 inches.

On Sunday, it had used the same projections but dropped the totals early today to 18-24 inches.

The Blizzard Warning, in effect to midnight Tuesday,  said there will be “snow accumulation of 20 to 30 inches with locally higher amounts, especially across Long Island and Connecticut.”

There will be snowfall rates of 2 to 4 inches per hour late tonight into Tuesday morning with winds north 20 to 30 mph with gusts up to 50 mph. Gusts up to 60 mph are possible across eastern Long Island, the Weather Service said.

Marpe Meets With Emergency Team Image
Westport First Selectman Jim Marpe met today with his emergency management team at Westport Town Hall to continue storm planning. Also there was a representative from Connecticut Light and Power Company to coordinate the utility’s efforts with the town. Marpe activated the town’s emergency Operations Center at fire headquarters for the storm’s duration. Public Works Director Steve Edwards said coastal storms usually hit the west side of Westport harder than the other sections—for instance, there could be 7-8 inches more snow in the Greens Farms area than in other areas. Tree warden Bruce Lindsay said he hoped for less of a threat of fallen trees in critical areas because the town has undertaken mitigation efforts in recent years. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for
