Greenwich Winter Storm Update


By Richard Kaufman

According to an update from the Town of Greenwich, Town Public Works and Parks and Recreation crews are continuing to plow roads as the fourth nor’easter of the month moves throughout the region.

“Greenwich Police ask that residents abide by the Snow Emergency and on-street parking ban to allow crews to quickly, safely and efficiently continue snow cleanup efforts,” the update said in part.

As of late Wednesday morning, Greenwich Police have ticketed and arranged for the towing of 20 vehicles parked along snow emergency routes.

“We advise people to stay off the roads and to only travel if absolutely necessary,” GPD Police Chief James Heavey said, noting that there have been “less than a handful” of motor vehicle accidents around town.

As of 3:30 p.m., on Wednesday afternoon, there are no power outages reported in Greenwich. Should residents lose power and are in need of a warming center or place to charge their electronic devices, the Public Safety Complex, located at 11 Bruce Place, is open 24 hours.

Another update is expected around 9 p.m., Wednesday night.
