Hurricane Sandy: Simsbury Activates Storm Information Center

Simsbury officials aim to keep residents informed as Hurricane Sandy progresses.

Submitted by the Town of Simsbury

In anticipation of storm conditions next week, the Town of Simsbury has activated its on-line “Storm Information Center” at www.simsbury-ct.gov

"Our goal is to make sure that our residents have up-to-date, useful information to help them prepare for and weather the storm," First Selectman Mary A. Glassman said.  "The website includes information about the progress of Hurricane Sandy, suggestions about how to prepare for the storm and important contact information.  It will be updated with current information as it becomes relevant and available."

Residents are strongly urged to sign up for emergency alerts with www.CTAlert.gov and the Town of Simsbury’s “Community Alerts” system at www.simsbury-ct.gov/alerts.  Links for these services can also be found at the Storm Information Center. 

"These notification systems are our best way of reaching residents in the event of a power outage – particularly when residents sign up for cell phone notifications," said Glassman.  "Residents should also tune in to WTIC (AM 1080) which did an excellent job of sharing Town information during our last major storm."

Based on the latest weather information, residents should review the "Storm Preparation Tips" on the website to ensure that they have the necessary supplies before the storm hits next week. 

Tom Roy, Director of Public Works, is also urging residents living near catch basins to make sure that leaves are not piled near the catch basins. 

"The public works crew is working to clear these areas," said Roy, "and we’re asking the public to help us as leaves continue to fall over the next few days."

Hope they blow the sirens 24/7 like in Winter Storm Alfred. Tired of those little whiny neighbors who complain it is too loud. It can't even go off after 7 at night anymore since September of 08 when it caused too many "annoying complaints".
