DARIEN, Conn. - Right after nearly all Darien residents got their power back on, officials are warning to expect more outages as the nor’easter rolls into town Wednesday afternoon.

CL&P has retained its crews in this area to help with new problems that arise, First Selectman Jayme Stevenson said. She said that if you have a documented medical condition or are the in-home caregiver for someone who does, you should call CL&P at 1-800-286-2000 and ask them to flag your account.

The storm will bring snow and rain, with winds around 30 mph and gusts up to 60 mph. No meaningful snow accumulation is expected but roadways may become slippery. Storm surges during the high tide cycles will be between three and five feet and may cause moderate coastal flooding.

Stevenson said that Hurricane Sandy altered the coastline in many areas so any coastal flooding may impact homeowners differently. The town is ready to open its emergency shelter at Darien High School if it needs to.
