FULL TEXT: EMERGENCY ALERT MESSAGE FROM TIM HERBST -

The following is a message from Trumbull Citizen Alert:

This is First Selectman Tim Herbst calling from the emergency operations center. Over the last hour, conditioned have worsened, with trees and wires coming down at an accelerated rate. It is difficult to see downed wires. Trees are blocking major roadways and some trees have even come down on residential homes. 70 mph wind gusts have been reported in town. We are receiving reports that residents are outside in the vicinity of downed trees and downed wires. Chances of death and electrocution increase when you expose yourself to this risk. Everyone needs to get inside and into shelter immediately. It is not safe to be outdoors under any circumstances.

Please check the town website, www.trumbull-ct.gov for further updates and information and also follow us at Facebook.com/townoftrumbull and Twitter feed @townoftrumbull.

This is First Selectman Tim Herbst. Thank you for listening.
