The New Canaan Emergency Operations Center called residents with an update at 7 p.m. Monday urging residents to stay away from barricaded areas.

According to the phone message, the EOC went to "great lengths to identify and barricade" dangerous areas with downed trees and more than 170 live wires in order to the lift the curfew.

However, to ensure the safety of residents and first responders, the message continued, EOC officials had to spend a considerable amount of time and resources remarking and re-barricading dangerous areas.

The message urged residents to leave the barricades untouched so that safety officials can "allocate [their] resources to other pressing matters."
