Update: Norwalk snow emergency declaration has been lifted as of 5 p.m. Friday.
NORWALK, Conn. – A snow emergency declared by Mayor Harry Rilling went into effect in Norwalk at 4 p.m. today. Residents are asked to remove vehicles from the street to aid in efficient snow removal.
Cars must be removed from snow emergency routes. If your vehicle prevents clearing of the street for emergency responders, you may be subject to ticketing and towing.
The city currently intends to collect garbage and recycling on schedule, but that may change based on the severity of the storm. In such case, further public service announcements will be issued.
Rilling announced the city is offering the Community Room at the police station as a warming center for anyone who may lose power during the storm. If conditions become too severe, the city will open an additional emergency center at Brien McMahon High School.
