NORWICH – An unseasonably late winter storm blew into Norwich Sunday night, dropping several inches of wet, heavy snow and causing tree limbs and power lines to come down in many areas of the city by Monday. Today, the city Department of Public Works will continue working to clean up the damage left by the storm.
According to DPW Superintendent Carl Ivarson, the snow caused several large trees and tree limbs to come down. He explained that yesterday, the DPW’s biggest concern was clearing the roads to ensure traffic could get through. Ivarson said DPW employees were out plowing roads by 4 a.m. Monday. “The guys are doing a fantastic job,” the DPW chief said.
