As snow is falling again, the Wilton Police Department is reporting that at the height of the March 7 and 8 Nor'easter, the second Nor'easter to hit the area in a 10-day span, 30 roads were closed.

During the storm, the department responded to 211 calls for service, including four for traffic accidents and 141 calls related to road conditions such as downed trees and utility wires, the department reported.

In total, 192 separate locations were identified on more than 100 roads with either downed trees or wires.

At the height of the storm, more than 30 roads were completely closed, police said.

The department said that without the help and hard work of the Wilton Fire and EMS departments, Wilton Public Works and Parks and Recreation crews they would not have been able to make all roads passable and keep the public safe. They also thanked the Wilton CERT team for their assistance and local residents for remaining patient and help in identifying problem areas.
