Fairfield Town Hall will be closed Monday because of damage from the weekend storms and several roads in Westport are closed.
Fairfield Town Hall was going to open at 10:30 a.m. but will now be closed. The storms knocked out power and the generator was also knocked out.
The powerful storms are to blame for the death of a man in Fairfield. Police said he was driving with his family when a tree limb went through the windsheid.
On Monday morning, Fairfield police said four to six poles are down on Old Post Road near town hall and a vehicle is trapped between two poles. The driver was able to get out of the vehicle.
Town hall was not damaged.
Westport police are urging people to stay home as the cleanup happens. Several roads are closed and several power lines are down.
Because of power outages, the traffic control signals are still not functional at the Sherwood Island Connector.
Police said anyone who must be on the road should drive with caution and not attempt to go around police tape or barricades. Police urge drivers to allow for extra time because of extensive damage throughout town.
Thirty-five roads have been re-opened.
There are road closures at the following locations:
- Long Lots Lane
