Town of Greenwich message, Monday, November 5, 2012:

Good evening.  This is Captain Mark Kordick of the Town of Greenwich Police Department with the daily update on Hurricane Sandy recovery efforts for Monday, November 5th from the Town’s Emergency Operations Center.

The Town remains in a declared state of emergency and the Emergency Operations Center is open.  As of this evening, 19% of Connecticut Light and Power customers in Town remain without service.  At total of 170 line crews, 80 tree crews and 31 pole set crews are at work in Greenwich.  CL&P still cannot provide a solid timetable for complete restoration of all service in Greenwich.

Temperatures tonight are expected to be near or slightly below freezing.  The shelter at Eastern Middle School remains open on a 24-hour basis.  If you are without power and heat, there is no reason to remain at home, in the dark and be cold.  Please feel free to come to the shelter. 

A Nor’easter is scheduled to arrive in our area Wednesday night into Thursday.  We are watching this storm closely in the Emergency Operations Center.  Wind gusts up to 60 MPH are considered possible along the coast.  A storm surge 3 to 5 feet above normal is predicted but fortunately, the astronomical tides are low this week.  Still, some local flooding may be possible, and with Sandy leaving so many compromised trees and structures behind, the winds may be problematic.  Please watch the forecast and be prepared for this weather event – especially if wind or flooding predictions worsen.

Carbon Monoxide poisoning is a real danger.  Never use generators indoors or allow them to run near open doors or windows.  Never allow vehicles to run inside garages, even with the garage door open.  Never use a stove or oven for heat.

Please do not leave debris, wood or leaf piles on any part of the Town right of way or on the paved portion of any street.  Not only is it unsafe for pedestrians, motorists and emergency vehicles, it is discourteous to your neighbors, and most importantly, it is illegal.  For those of you looking to do something to assist your community’s first responders, not obstructing streets with debris is really very, very helpful to us. 

The Holly Hill Lane Transfer Station will be open tomorrow from 7am to 4pm and residents may dispose of their own storm-related organic debris at no cost.  Commercial landscapers and haulers are still required to pay normal fees.  

As a reminder, schools are closed tomorrow for Election Day.  All polling places in Greenwich will be open.  Please take the time to come out and vote.

And now the news everyone is anxious to hear: The Town is suggesting that those residents who wish to engage in Halloween Trick-or-Treating do so this Sunday, November 11th from 4 to 8 pm.  With the time change and the early onset of darkness, we are encouraging children to get out early and return home before dark.

If you are cold and have no power or if you need water, food or other essential assistance, please feel free to call the Greenwich Police Department’s non-emergency number at 203-622-8000 for help.

Residents will be updated via this same system tomorrow evening.  Until then, please be patient, remain civil, keep warm and stay safe.

Town of Greenwich message, Sunday, November 4, 2012:

Good evening.  This is the daily update on Hurricane Sandy recovery efforts for Sunday, November 4th from the Town’s Emergency Operations Center.

The Town remains in a declared state of emergency.  As of this evening, 27% of Greenwich’s Connecticut Light and Power customers remain without service.  At total of 165 line crews, 59 tree crews and 29 pole set crews are at work, in Greenwich.  The universal time provided by CL&P for 95% restoration to all customers statewide is tomorrow or Tuesday.

We are forecast to have another very cold evening.  The shelter at Eastern Middle School remains open on a 24-hour basis.  Warm showers are also available there.  Please bring your own towel and toiletries.  The Western Greenwich Civic Center and Greenwich Libraries will be open during regular hours to serve as warming centers and for cell phone charging.

Please do not use unsafe alternate heating sources in your home.  We have already experienced a house fire in Greenwich as the result of an unsafe alternate heat source.  Never use generators indoors.  Never use a stove or oven for heat.  Keep in mind that some smoke detectors or carbon monoxide alarms will not work without power.

Please do not leave storm debris on any part of the Town right of way.  Never leave downed wood, limbs, leaves or debris on the paved portion of any street.  Not only is it unsafe for pedestrians, motorists and emergency responders, it is discourteous to your neighbors, and most importantly, it is illegal.  For those of you looking to do something to help your community’s first responders, not obstructing streets with debris is a great way to start. 

The Holly Hill Lane Transfer Station will be open with extended hours on Monday and Tuesday from 7am to 4pm and continues to accept storm-related organic debris from residents for free.

After careful analysis of remaining road closures, sidewalk obstructions, wires down and other hazards, on consultation with Town of Greenwich Public Safety officials, the Superintendent has decided that all Greenwich public schools will remain closed tomorrow, Monday, November 5th.  Schools are already scheduled to be closed to students on Tuesday, November 6th for Election Day.  Normal Teacher and Staff Development activities scheduled for Tuesday are scheduled to proceed normally.

A decision on a rescheduled date for school Halloween parties and townwide trick-or-treating, if any, has been deferred as Town Officials watch the forecast for Wednesday’s developing Nor’easter.  

All Greenwich polling places will be open for Tuesday’s election.  Do not forget to vote.

If you are cold and have no power or if you need water, food or other essential assistance, please feel free to call the Greenwich Police Department’s non-emergency number at 203-622-8000 for help.

Residents will be updated via this same system tomorrow evening.  Until then, please be patient, remain civil, keep warm and stay safe.

CL&P Outage Map 9224 customers in Greenwich without power or 33%.

Town of Greenwich message, Saturday, November 3, 2012:

Good evening.  This is the November 3rd update on Hurricane Sandy recovery efforts from the Town’s Emergency Operations Center.  

The Town remains in a declared state of emergency.  39% of Greenwich Connecticut Light and Power customers remain without electric service.  Municipal officials, including First Selectman Tesei entertained a high level meeting with CL&P executives this afternoon in an effort to facilitate restoration efforts.  As of this evening, a total of 182 CL&P power restoration line crews and 50 tree and debris crews are at work, in Greenwich, dedicated to restoration efforts.  CL&P continues to logically prioritize work by selecting work locations based on returning service to the highest number of customers with the lowest number of crew hours required to affect that particular repair.  No restoration prediction has been provided specific to Greenwich.  The CL&P statewide prediction remains 95% restoration by Monday or Tuesday. 

Power has been restored to all Town of Greenwich polling places and no power-related interference with Tuesday’s election is anticipated.  Please come out and vote.  

Greenwich Libraries and the Western Greenwich Civic Center remain in normal daytime operation to serve as warming centers and cellphone charging locations. 

A cold front is anticipated to move through tonight and overnight temperatures will drop into the 30’s.  If you are cold because your home has no heat, please come to the Eastern Greenwich Civic Center shelter at 51 Hendrie Avenue in Riverside.  It remains in 24-hour operation.  There really is no reason to stay at home and be cold. 

Please do NOT attempt to heat your home with unsafe alternate heat sources.  Greenwich First Responders had to respond today to a home in the Back Country when a halogen heat lamp, powered by a portable generator was knocked over by a pet and started a fire.  The home sustained major damage.  Do not use stoves or ovens for heat.  Please keep in mind that without power, some smoke and carbon monoxide detectors may not work.  Fire safety is paramount during power outages. 

The Holly Hill Lane transfer station will be open from 10 am to 4 pm tomorrow and 7 am to 4 pm on Monday and Tuesday.  As always, residents may dispose of storm-related organic material there free of charge.  The front gate remains closed due to storm damage.  What is the normal exit on Muskrat Pond Drive must be used for both entry and exit. 

Do not leave storm debris on any part of the Town right of way.  Never leave downed wood, limbs, leaves or debris on the paved portion of any street.  Not only is it unsafe for pedestrians, motorists and emergency responders and discourteous to your neighbors, most importantly, it is illegal.  Quite frankly, with all we have to do right now, the Police Department would rather not have to spend our time issuing citations to residents over highway nuisances. 

A decision on school re-openings and the rescheduled date for Halloween-trick-or-treating will be made by 2:00 pm tomorrow. 

If you are cold and have no power or if you need water, food or other essential assistance, please feel free to call the Greenwich Police Department’s non-emergency number at 203-622-8000 for help. 

Residents will be updated via this same system tomorrow evening.  Until then, please be patient, remain civil, keep warm and stay safe.

<888> 11/04/12 Sunday 1:50 A.M..  I went out after the last note.  The Mobil and the Shell stations on West Putnam Avenue were out of gasoline.  I went by the A&P Fresh, and they still had not gotten a major delivery.  The Shell Station across the street from Whole Foods had a long line.  I went to Whole Foods, and I bought bananas for .99 a pound for $2.42 and two Washington State red apples for $1.99 a pound for $2.03 for $4.45 total.  I then went downtown, and I walked the entire length of Greenwich Avenue and the train station area.  I sat out at various locations.  I chatted with a few locals.  I stopped by CVS, and I bought buy one get one free of 60 capsule CVS B-100 for $12.99 and .82 tax for $13.81 total.  I then bought two 7 ounce bags of Cheese Combos for $1.50 each, and two 19 ounce cans of Campbell's Roadhouse chili for $2 each and one Campbell's 19 ounce Roadhouse chili with stead for $2 for $9 total.  I used the bathroom at CVS.  After my walk, I sat out for a while.  I chatted with someone at Starbucks.  I then drove east on East Putnam Avenue.  All of the gasoline stations to the Stamford border were closed except the Shell Station across from Whole Foods.  At the Getty station at the entrance to Old Greenwich there were about a 100 people standing in line waiting to fill up gasoline cans, but cars were not allowed.  I went by the Hyatt Hotel, and I toured the Hotel Lobby.  It was quite busy.  The utility trucks for fixing the electrical grid were parked there.  I then drove back to downtown Greenwich, and I used the bathroom at Starbucks.  I chatted with another local.  I then went back by the Shell Station across from Whole Foods, but they were closed.  I then went by the Shell Station on West Putnam Avenue which was out of gasoline, and I was told by another person that the Round Hill Service Center was pumping gasoline, but they did not know where it was.  I told them to follow me.  I drove back east on West Putnam Avenue to the Greenwich Library, and I turned north on Lake Avenue for about two miles, and then I turned left on to Round Hill Road for about four miles to the Round Hill Service Center.  I filled up the tank with full service premium Gulf gasoline for $38.01 for $4.599 a gallon for 8.265 gallons at odometer reading of 71544 miles for 93.3 miles driving since Sunday October 14, 2012 for 11.289 miles per gallon in mostly local traffic.  The credit card machine was not working at the Round Hill Service center, so customers have to pay cash.  I then returned back down Round Hill Road, and I stopped by the Shell Station on West Putnam Avenue, and I told them the Round Hill Service station had gasoline and no line.  The Round Hill Service center told me, they might stay open for a while later.  I then drove by the Exxon gasoline station on the Port Chester border, and there were about 150 cars lined up.  I then returned home.  It is about 7 miles from my apartment in Byram to the Round Hill Service Center.  However, it is very dark driving in back country.  I was told they now have power on Round Hill Road, but one could see a lot of large fallen trees.  CIO
