NORWALK, Conn. A state of emergency remains in effect in the city of Norwalk as downed trees and power lines continue to impose a certain risk for our residents. Current plans are to lift the state of emergency at 4 o'clock Tuesday afternoon.
Norwalk public works crews have worked throughout the day in coordination with utility companies to prioritize locations and work on road clearing and power restoration. Some restoration is complete. At this time, 34% of Norwalk residents remain without power and complete restoration is still expected to take several more days.
Residents are reminded that any downed wire should still be treated as live. Avoid it and report it.
I urge you again to look in on neighbors who may be elderly or in need of special care to ensure they are safe.
Calf Pasture and Veterans Park will remain closed until noon Wednesday.
A separate announcement regarding the schedule for opening Norwalk public schools will be issued by Superintendent of Schools Dr. Susan Marks.
Library branches will be open and available for internet access or simply to charge your communication devices.
This has been a difficult time for all our residents but I wish to express my thanks to all of you for your cooperation and assistance as we weathered this storm together.
