First Selectman Camillo declares state of emergency in wake of Tropical Storm Isaias

GREENWICH — The town was heavily battered by heavy rain and strong winds from Tropical Storm Isaias as it sprinted up the East Coast, prompting First Selectman Fred Camillo to declare a state of emergency in Greenwich by early Tuesday evening.

The state of emergency will remain in place until further notice. Work crews from Eversource and the town were expected to work through the night and into Wednesday to clear fallen trees and branches and restore power to town residents.

“There are lots of downed wires and trees all over the town, and in some places it is going cause significant delays,” Camillo said. “We will be out there with crews all day and night so we can clear the roads for our essential businesses to be up and running.”

Camillo urged residents to stay home unless it was absolutely necessary to go out. The roads should remain clear to allow the work to continue, he said.
