October 26th - Storm Update

Greetings Greenwich friends and neighbors.

The powerful Nor’easter type storm is located about 210 miles southeast of Cape Cod. This storm is moving to the northwest back towards New England. Meanwhile an area of moderate to heavy rain is currently falling over northern New Jersey, New York City and into southern Connecticut. 

Winds from the northeast are gusting to 40 to 50 mph along the coast. Eversource is reporting that there are 28 customers without power in Greenwich at this time. As of now, we have been fortunate that we have not received any reports of roads closed or flooded. On Stag Lane, there is a wire/tree branch issue but the road remains passable. 


Here is the updated forecast from the National Weather Service. 


This Afternoon: The rainfall and winds may slightly subside for a few hours by late afternoon as the primary low pressure center near New York City weakens. Maximum rainfall rates of ¼” to ½” inch per hour can be expected. Winds are forecast to gust to 35 to 45 mph at times. Some minor urban flooding and minor power outages can be expected. 

This Evening and Overnight: As the Nor’easter approaches New England from the southeast, another period of moderate to heavy rain accompanied by stronger winds is expected to begin this evening and continue overnight. 

Rainfall rates around ½” per hour and NNE winds may gust to 45 to 60 mph at times especially in eastern Connecticut. Those winds may again cause some minor urban flooding and a high end minor to low end moderate impact to power lines. 

Wednesday Morning: Most impacts should subside by mid-morning on Wednesday as the storm begins to depart to the east. Coastal flooding may occur at high tides; specifically, at 3:41 p.m. on Tuesday and at 4:18 a.m. on Wednesday. The high winds and rain may result in downed trees and power outages. Travel on local roads may become hazardous. 

Please continue to monitor the Town's website and social media for updates, as well as local news and weather forecasts. This type of fast-moving storm is difficult to predict and changes to its track may strengthen or lessen its final impact to our community. 

Emergency teams from Town departments continue to monitor the storm and continue to respond as needed. Please remember to call 9-1-1 only for emergencies. 

Power outages

  • Stay away from downed wires. All wires should be viewed as live – with the potential to electrocute. Downed wires should be reported to 9-1-1.
  • If a traffic signal is out – treat signals as stop signs and proceed with caution. Service will be restored as quickly as possible.
  • Use of portable generators: Place generators outside, at least 20 feet from any structure. Close windows that are on that side of the home where the generator is located. If the concentration of carbon monoxide is above 35 ppm, it can be toxic. Carbon monoxide symptoms include headache, nausea, dizziness and fatigue. If you experience any of these symptoms, call 911. Keep watch on any burning candles or other open flame sources used for lighting. 

Road blockages

  • You can report blocked roads to the Greenwich Public Safety General Dispatch number at 203-622-8004. 

Utility outages

  • Report all outages to Eversource online at www.eversource.com, or by calling 800-286-2000. 
  • Optimum: message at optimum.net/chat; tweet to @Optimumhelp or call 866-950-3278. o Frontier: customer service: 1-800-239-4430 for residential customers or 1-800- 921-8102 for business customers. 


Please be careful and continue to watch out for one another. 

All the best, Fred
