The first of the power outages occur
Update: Monday, 1 p.m. — At this point, 136 Wilton customers are without power. As the storm intensifies, CL&P's ability to restore power will be diminished.
In nearby Weston, one-third of the town is without power.
In addition to the shelter at Miller-Driscoll, which opened this morning, other town facilities that have offered assistance to residents are:
Wilton Family Y, Danbury Road (closed until Tuesday)
Comstock Community Center, School Road
Trackside Teen Center, Station Road
St. Matthew's Church, New Canaan Road
Gilbert & Bennett Community Cultural Center, New Street
Monday: 11 a.m. — Wilton's Emergency Operations Center is up and running this morning.
First Selectman Bill Brennan reported highway crews have had to deal with a few trees coming down, causing partial road blockages. Granite Drive, affected earlier this morning, has been cleared. There are some blockages on smaller roads, he said, but no major roads are affected as yet.
There are also a few power outages that are being addressed.
Mr. Brennan said unlike last year's big storms, CL&P "has resources on the scene ... hopefully our recovery will be quicker."
With coastal flooding a major concern, Wilton has sent its rescue boat, through mutual aid, to Norwalk.
With the travel ban on state roads, non-emergency town workers have been sent home.
"We will address problems as they arise," Mr. Brennan said.
