The City of Ansonia will be activating an emergency shelton at Ansonia High School Monday at 8 a.m.
Please read the information distributed by the city Sunday evening:
“Hello, this is Mayor James DellaVolpe with an important message from the City of Ansonia.
The current forecast shows that Hurricane Sandy will impact the City of Ansonia after midnight tonight with the worst of the weather during the day and evening on Monday and into Tuesday. While the track of the storm may change, we can expect to receive hurricane force winds and heavy rain over a one or two day period. Be prepared for street and basement flooding as well as power outages.
Please stay away from any downed trees, poles or power lines. During the height of the storm, police, fire and emergency medical crews may only be able to respond to life threatening emergencies. Please call 911 to report emergencies.
The City of Ansonia’s emergency managements personnel will be staffing the emergency operations center beginning tonight at 10:00 p.m. and continuing thru the storm and the immediate cleanup.
The City of Ansonia has made the decision to open the Emergency Shelter on Monday morning at 8:00 a.m. for those seeking emergency shelter. The emergency shelter is located at the Ansonia High School on Pulaski Highway. Any residents that are going to the shelter are asked to bring any medication, pillow, blankets, and personal toiletries.
If needed, an animal shelter will be opened at the Prendergast School. Any animals need to be cage and the resident is required to supply food for the animal. One resident will be needed to remain at the school with their animal.
Depending on the amount of damage caused by the storm, assistance with debris removal may be delayed for several days after the storm.
City crews have begun cleaning catch basins and will continue to do so until the storm priorities dictate otherwise. If possible, we would appreciate any assistance in keeping these catch basins unobstructed to help reduce local flooding.
We will be updating residents as the need arises. (See below for UI outage information.)
Thank you and be safe.”
Mayor James Della Volpe
UI Outage information:
The United Illuminating Company encourages all of its customers to be prepared for the impending storm. First of all, please be safe. Always remember to stay far away from any downed power lines. Assume downed wires are live, stay far away and please call UI at 1.800.722.5584.
Also, if you witness utility crews at work in your area……. please allow them to complete restoration work. These crews have limited direct information for the public and restoring power to neighborhoods is often delayed when they are detained by well-intentioned customers. The best option is to call UI at 1.800.722.5584 or visit the website at uinet.com for updates and information. You can also get information by following the UI on Twitter @UnitedIllum
