Greenwich crews work overtime to clear damage from gusty winds
Greenwich crews were out in full force Saturday cleaning up damage from gusty winds that led to road closures, outages and flooding.
Department of Public Works (DPW) crews spent the day clearing leaves from blocked storm drains, which caused flooding and temporarily blocked roadways. Workers also responded to reports of downed trees and power lines. David Karp says he heard wind gusting, then there was a flash of light. Karp says a tree fell down next to his house. Karp lost power, but says utility crews quickly sprang into action.
The DPW remains on standby due to more strong winds expected in the forecast. Town officials are asking Greenwich residents to remain patient. Governor Jodi Rell (R-CT) met with Emergency Management Saturday to assess the situation.
