Re: Storm Recovery Update
Issued by: Lieutenant Jeremiah P. Marron Jr.
For Immediate Release
Town of Darien has sustained significant storm damage over the past 24
hours. There are several locations in
which downed trees have severed power lines and caused property damage. Currently the Police Department and Public
Works Department are working closely with Eversource in an attempt to restore
power to the area beginning with high priority locations first. As of 9:30 am today, Eversource is reporting
approximately 790 residents are without power in Darien.
our communications center is inundated with both emergency and routine calls. Please do not call the police department to
inquire about outages. To report outages or inquire about restoration
times, Eversource can be contacted at 1-800-286-2000 or
1-860-947-2000. Residents can also report an outage on
the Eversource website as well.
secondary roadways are completely impassable and non-essential travel is not
recommended. All downed power lines are to
be considered energized. Pedestrians
should keep clear of downed trees as hidden powerlines may be involved or
attached. If a location is taped off or
barricaded, there is a danger ahead. Stay
clear of the area. Below is a confirmed
list of road closures or blockages that may or may not involve downed powerlines. Please avoid these areas:
Neck Point Rd.
Tree Point Rd.
