New Canaan update from Handler
Published 9:44 am, Saturday, February 9, 2013
Emergency Management Director Mike Handler provided the following 9 a.m. update about the status of New Canaan following the blizzard.
"We currently have no reported power outages in town. Our highway crews are out working to make roadways passable but with 20-plus inches of snow accumulation, this is not going to be an easy or quick task."
Gov. Dannel Malloy has extended the mandated driving ban "to include all roadways until we are able to remove the snow. Please remember that it is against the town code to push snow from private driveways out into the roadways. Please have the snow pushed in towards your property. This will prevent our roads from becoming blocked after our crews have cleared them," said Handler.

He suggests continuing to call Connecticut Light & Power with any power outages at 800-286-2000.
"At this time, the EOC is moving to monitoring status. We are thankful that New Canaan was spared any significant damage, and I am unaware of any town ordinance limiting the height of your snowmen so enjoy your weekend in the snow and stay safe."
