    New Milford schools and Region 15 schools in Southbury and Middlebury will be closed on Wednesday because of storm damage and other schools are opening late.

    New Milford has not only canceled school for the day, but also school-sponsored activities and out-of-district transportation.

    District officials made the decision on Tuesday night after seeing the storm damage. They said that it's too dangerous for the students and buses to be out on the roads. At least one of the schools doesn't have power and roads are blocked.

    There are some school delays in Monroe because of a power outage at Masuk High School and SBAC testing at Masuk will be postponed.

    There is a two-and-a-half four delay for students at Masuk and Jockey Hollow STEM, which is also located at the high school. Jockey Hollow Main Campus will operate on a regular schedule.

    In Southbury, there were several trees down on Main Street South, East, West Flat Hill and Peter roads and Route 172 on Tuesday night, with many blocking the roadways. A utility pole fell on Peter Road in town.

    Additional police and public works crews were called in. Southbury's Emergency Operations Center at the Southbury Resident Trooper's Office was activated and First Selectman Ed Edelson and Fire Marshal Barry Rickert, the emergency management director, were there coordinating storm response efforts.
