Town officials are advising Greenwich residents to stay inside and to not travel today after as much as 15 inches of heavy snow fell overnight, causing dangerous road conditions and bringing cold temperatures.
Currently no power outages or injuries have been reported in Greenwich as a result of the storm, the Greenwich Police Department and Connecticut Light and Power say. The town has opened the Bendheim Western Greenwich Civic Center as a warming and emergency shelter.
Though skies may be clearing this morning and into the afternoon, deep snowdrifts are highly possible and parents should be sure to supervise all children and pets when they are out in the snow.
The town is also advising residents to make an Emergency Supply Kit and keep all of these non-emergency contact phone numbers handy. In the event of an emergency call 911.
