MILFORD - Milford officials are urging homeowners along the shoreline to inspect their property and prepare for any flooding this weekend's storm may bring.

Meteorologists say Connecticut could get some significant snowfall this weekend with the potential for coastal flooding and erosion. The latest models show strong winds in excess of 45 mph - a particular cause for concern around high tide.

Officials say they are tracking this storm and have an emergency alert system to warn residents of any dangers.

Milford Fire Department Battalion Chief Anthony Fabrizi says the department is well aware of the consequences its coastal communities could face.

Should severe weather arrive, the department tells residents to remain alert, stay off the roads and don't hesitate to call for help in an emergency.
