HENRI BECOMES A HURRICANE.

The latest track is slightly to the East with landfall expected near Madison Ct, at 8:00PM Sunday evening.

At 11:00 AM, Hurricane Henri was located at Lat. 34.4 North Long. 72.5 West or approximately 465 miles south of Montauk Point, Long Island. Henri is moving to the north northeast at 14 MPH with maximum sustained winds of 75 MPH.

For this afternoon, Henri is forecast to continue moving up the U.S. east coast, remaining 200 – 300 miles off-shore. Henri is forecast to continue to strengthen gradually this afternoon as the storm crosses the warm gulf stream waters east of the Carolina’s and Virginia. The first effects of Henri are now expected to begin between 6:00 - 10:00 AM Sunday morning. Wind and rain are expected to steadily increase during the late morning and thru the afternoon. Henri is forecast to make landfall near Madison, CT Sunday evening between 6:00 – 7:00 PM as a strong tropical storm with sustained winds of 70 MPH and gusts to 85 MPH.

The Greenwich Police Department has initiated its storm response protocols. We will have extra staffing for the remainder of the weekend.

During this time before the Hurricane is in our area please check on your elder relatives and neighbors to be sure they are doing well and have supplies in case of power outages.

The John Margenot Atrium, located within the Town of Greenwich Public Safety Complex at 11 Bruce Place, has been designated a cooling and charging station. Open 24 hours. Please wear a mask and maintain proper social distancing if you come to use the facility.

The Greenwich Fire Department would like to remind residents many wires are hidden under branches and other debris. All wires need to be treated as live. Keep away from any wire on the ground. Electrocution can occur with a downed power line, or with the earth near a downed power line.

Portable Generators & Carbon monoxide - If the concentration of carbon monoxide is above 35 ppm, it can be toxic. Early symptoms are Headache, Nausea, Dizziness, and Fatigue. Most causes during outages are from portable generators. Place generators outside 20’ from any structure. Shut windows that are on that side of the home. If you experience any of these symptoms, call 911. Keep watch on any burning candles or other open flame sources used for lighting.

Message from First Selectman Fred Camillo

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning beginning at 7pm today and lasting until 6am Tuesday. This long lasting major storm may bring total snowfall of between 12 and 18 inches. Strong winds gusting to almost 40 miles per hour may produce blizzard-like conditions making travel extremely unsafe and wind chill factors well below freezing. The strongest portion of the storm should arrive Monday afternoon. There is potential for flooding in low lying and coastal areas on Monday with the high tide.

The lobby of the Public Safety Complex will be open as a warming center if needed.

In order to assist the Department of Public Works in their snow removal efforts, the Board of Selectmen has declared a snow emergency for the Town of Greenwich effective at 8pm tonight, January 31st.

This means that there will be no parking allowed on designated snow emergency routes, which are posted with signs and listed on the Town of Greenwich web site.

If you have any appointments on Monday or Tuesday, including Covid vaccinations, please verify that they will be open before you attempt travel. We encourage you to re-schedule appointments now, if possible.

As you prepare now for the storm, please pay attention to those around you who may need a little extra assistance. Like all the challenges we have faced this past year, we can get through this together.
Be safe and please watch out for one another.

Town of Greenwich

Greetings Greenwich friends and neighbors.

On the cusp of the start of winter, we certainly all got to experience a bit of Old Man Winter this week.

The snow and bitter winds presented quite the challenge for our Department of Public Works and Parks & Recreation crews who worked around-the-clock to keep our roads passable. They are continuing their work to provide even more clean up.

Thank you for abiding by the snow emergency (which expired at 4 p.m. today) to help make that work a bit easier. Beginning Monday night (December 21), crews will be out overnight to remove the massive snow piles around Town. So I ask that you comply with any temporary ‘no parking’ restrictions that will be posted – that will facilitate the crews’ work.

I also want to give a shout-out to all of the first responders – police, fire (both professional and the volunteers) and GEMS – who worked throughout the storm to provide the first-class emergency services they always do.

COVID-19 Update

As of today, December 18, the Town has seen an increase of 265 reported new cases from a week ago. According to Health Director Caroline Baisley, there are 115 active cases. The vast majority of patients are 11 to 60 years old.

Greenwich Public Schools is reporting that there are 18 active cases in 10 of our schools and that 16 of those cases can be traced to non-school activities or family exposure. Two cases are linked to in-school exposure.

As of today, there has been a total of 2,170 residents who have tested positive since the pandemic began.

As of today, Greenwich Hospital was treating 31 patients with COVID-19, with one patient in the ICU.

Sadly, during the past week we have lost another resident to COVID. Since the beginning of the pandemic, the Town has lost a total of 60 residents.

If you have any symptom such as a fever, cough, shortness of breath or loss of taste or smell, please get tested.

And please remember the other 3 W’s: watch your distance; wash your hands and wipe down surfaces. Staying apart and following the guidelines, will help all of us to be able to be together again soon.

Stay safe, stay healthy and all the best,

First Selectman Fred Camillo
