Winter Storm Brody is on its way and looks like it will dump a fairly substantial amount of snow on southeastern Connecticut.
Please use common-sense and try to stay off the roads throughout the storm. Additionally, here are a few storm preparation tips:
*To report an outage call Groton Utilities at 860-446-4000.
*Stay away from any downed wires you may encounter outside your home and on the roads.
*Exposed water pipes sometimes freeze and burst due to exposure to cold weather. Make sure you know where the water shut off is in your home.
*Never use a generator inside your home. Locate unit away from doors, windows and vents that could allow carbon monoxide to come indoors. Keep at least 20 feet from doors, windows, and vents.
*Make an emergency kit for at least three days of self-sufficiency.
*Use Rock salt or more environmentally safe products to melt ice on walkways.
