Blizzard Update – 2/9/2013, 7:00 AM

As a result of the enormous amount of snow that has fallen throughout the Naugatuck, most Borough streets are impassible at the current time.  A travel ban for all non-emergency responders has been in effect locally since 3:30 AM this morning (2/9/2013) and will remain until further notice.  Governor Malloy has also prohibited all vehicular traffic statewide until further notice.

The significant snow accumulation has compromised the Borough’s ability to plow roads.  Smaller plow trucks are ineffective against this much snow, and even the large plows have experienced problems throughout the night and early morning.  We ask your patience as we attempt to plow streets throughout the day this Saturday (2/9/2013).

While Naugatuck was spared significant power outages, there remain a small number of homes without power.  Given the difficulty in travel statewide, it may be some time before Connecticut Light and Power is able to restore power.  Please contact the Naugatuck Fire Department at 203-720-7083 if you are currently without power and in need of assistance.

If you are experiencing an emergency, please call 911.

Please make sure your furnace vent, if it exits out the side of your house, is clear of snow.  Dangerous levels of carbon monoxide will build up inside if the pipe is blocked

Naugatuck’s Emergency Operations Center (“EOC”) will remain activated at the Naugatuck Fire Station until further notice.  All resources are available to public safety and public works departments to respond to the aftermath of the blizzard.

Be safe.
