NORWALK, Conn. With a strong likelihood of high winds and heavy rain Sunday, Jackie Lightfield has advice: Clean the storm drains in your neighborhood, especially if you live in a low-lying area.
Another Norwalker suggests freezing bottles of water to use to keep food fresh in the event of a prolonged power outage. The New Englander remembers the old days, when it was standard procedure to use the easily perishable foods in the refrigerator and freeze gallon jugs to keep what was left cool for days of no electricity.
Lightfield says flooding from overloaded storm drains is a major risk for certain parts of Norwalk . "So please , take a quick walk around your block," she writes. "If you see leaves, trash or other debris blocking storm drains or gathered along the curb where water normally runs down towards the drain, please take a few moments and clear the debris away.
"You'll be doing a great service to yourself and your neighbors."
