Mother Nature has certainly tested our patience with two severe storms in the past few months causing power outages and widespread destruction across the Naugatuck Valley and Connecticut. However, as a community we must pull together and share resources to make these difficult days better. Thank you for checking on your neighbors and please share this information with anyone who does not have Internet access.
As of right now, CL&P is reporting about 30% of Naugatuck residents are still without electricity.
Andrew Avenue Elementary School, located at 140 Andrew Avenue, will remain open as an overnight shelter. Hot meals will be served beginning at 5:00 PM. City Hill will remain open throughout the day as a shower and cell-phone charging station until 5:00 PM. Any resident in need of transportation to the shelter may call the Naugatuck Fire Department at 203-720-7082.
The Congregational Church, Howard Whittemore Library, and Naugatuck Senior Center will remain open as warming stations, offering lights snacks and beverages. Residents may charge cell phones and other personal computing devices at these locations and any other Borough building that is open.

Again, I will keep you posted as I learn new information, and please share this information with anyone who does not have access to the Internet.
