FAIRFIELD, Conn. (CBS Connecticut) – Shoreline communities are keeping an eye on the forecast for this weekend, with Tropical Storm Hermine potentially headed to the region over Labor Day weekend.
The worst case scenario of this storm would include heavy, wind-driven rain and coastal flooding. More likely the state should receive some clouds and rain, but nothing out of the ordinary. This mainly depends on how far north the storm tracks.
In Fairfield, the locals are veterans of coastal storms. According to First Selectman Mike Tetreau, if nothing else, Tropical Storm Hermine should serve as a reminder of the importance of storm preparation. Tetreau said that officials want residents to be prepared if and when a more significant storm hits.
“It helps to get prepared, and to think things through,” he stated. “So if we do get a more serious threat later, we’re ready.”
