Brookfield is in the middle of its first snowfall of the winter season and that means it’s time to capture some serene winter photos and videos of the snow piling up.
Scattered outages are popping up in the Danbury area, with Bethel experiencing 12 percent power loss for a time (must of that restored by 3 p.m.) and Danbury and New Milford suffering from persistent outages, as well.
First Selectman Bill Davidson said that the town’s emergency management team had not met as of Wednesday afternoon, however, “If need, we can get ourselves in session within 30 minutes.”
“We know the drill and can implement any part of our plan nearly instantly,” he added, joking that he has “decided that Brookfield will have no more power outages this week.”
The National Weather Services warns that Connecticut could be hit with winds clocking in at 25 mph and gusts up 50 mph during the nor’easter. The wind advisory is in effect until 4 a.m. on Thursday, and the strength of the wind is capable of downing trees and power lines.
Total snowfall could reach up to 4 inches.
Brookfield schools closed early on Wednesday in advance of the snow.
