A Message to Ferguson, Mo. from Westport

WestportNow.com Image
The Rev. Roberta Finkelstein, congregants, and members of the community hold “A Gathering in Support of Love and Justice” tonight at The Unitarian Church in Westport in the aftermath of the Ferguson grand jury decision.  “Around the nation, people anxiously awaited the decision of the grand jury on whether to indict Officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Mike Brown,” Finklelstein said.  “With that decision comes the recurring pain of this event and all that it says about the state of racial justice in our country.  As Unitarian Universalists, we affirm the inherent worth and dignity of every person; at this particular point in time we most strongly assert that black lives matter.” (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Contributed photo

Winter Storm Watch Expanded to Include Westport

UPDATE The National Weather Service early today expanded its Winter Storm Watch to include Westport and western coastal Connecticut.

In late morning, the Weather Service raised its Winter Storm Watch for northern Fairfield County and other inland regions to a Winter Storm Warning from 7 a.m. Wednesday to 7 a.m. Thursday and predicted 6 to 10 inches of snow for those areas.

The Winter Storm Watch advisory continued in effect from Wednesday morning through Thursday morning for the coastal region, including Westport. It had earlier only included only inland portions of Connecticut.

The Weather Service said snow accumulations of 4 to 8 inches are possible, beginning with a mixture of rain and snow Wednesday morning and changing to all snow by early afternoon.
