Posted to: Ansonia, Frankenstorm
Ansonia Mayor James Della Volpe sent out a Code Red message Tuesday at 12:24 p.m. saying crews are working on clearing the many downed trees and branches that have caused thousands in the city to lose power.
This is a transcription of the mayor’s message:
“This is Mayor DellaVolpe with an emergency update from the City of Ansonia Emergency Operations Center.
We are now working on the after effects of Hurricane Sandy. Crews from United Illuminating are currently in the City of Ansonia and working on making the downed wires safe.
When that is completed, restoration efforts will begin. There are currently 1,411 customers in Ansonia that are without power.
There are several major roads that are currently closed due to downed trees and power lines which include sections of Division Street, Prindle Avenue and Beaver Street.
Please avoid these areas and use alternate routes.
The Ansonia Board of Education will be making a decision on the opening of school for Wednesday.
They will be sending out a message on the Connect Ed system later today with an update.
The emergency shelter at the Ansonia High School is closed as of noon today.
Residents may place storm debris on their lawns next to the roadway. Public Works personnel will begin pickups once roadways have been cleared of debris.
There will be no further Code Red alerts unless a need arises.
Thank you for your cooperation during the storm.”
