From the Town of Somers' Facebook page:

"The Somers Senior Center is closed and will be closed tomorrow, Friday, Jan. 3. There will be no Senior Bus Services both this afternoon or tomorrow due to the predicted amounts of snow overnight. Safety is our primary concern for everyone. Please, if you do not have to go out this evening, stay home and stay warm."

Be careful not to let your water pipes freeze during the bitter cold expected to hit us tonight and tomorrow. Here's a list of tips on what to do to prevent that, courtesy of the American Red Cross.

Also, don't forget to bring your pets inside!

Lastly, if you're out driving on ice, don't slam on your breaks.

From the Town of Somers'
Facebook page:

Thursday is typically a longer day for Somers' Town Hall offices, however due to the storm the town is shutting down municipal offices early.

"Town of Somers Municipal Offices will be closing at 3:30 p.m. so that vehicle traffic will be staggered on highways in order to allow people to return home safely and not impede the clearing of roadways."

From the Town of Somers'
Facebook page

"A Parking Ban is now in force to ensure that both the State and our Public Works Department can remove snow from roadways."

"Please be sure that all items, such as basketball hoops, and trash barrels are removed. Information will be posted both here and on the Town Of Somers Website: www.somersct.gov as needed."


Forecasts are calling for anywhere between 6 to 10 inches of snow throughout Connecticut. Somers students were let out early from school and tonight's Emergency Preparedness Council meeting was cancelled.
