Saturday, 9:39 .a.m. — Although winter storm Nemo dropped about a foot of snow in Wilton, the town finally caught a break and no power outages have been reported. The majority of outages have occurred in the southeastern part of the state with some scattered along the Massachusetts border. CL&P reports 38,310 outages across the state, far fewer than were suffered during Storm Sandy.

Wilton officials report town road crews have been plowing all night and 90% of roads have been plowed at least once. The town has about 126 miles of roads. Nevertheless, driving conditions remain hazardous and officials ask residents to refrain from driving until Gov. Dannel Malloy lifts the ban he imposed yesterday, closing all limited-access highways to traffic. The Department of Public Works will continue to plow throughout the day.

Many businesses and organizations closed Friday due to the snow.
