With Sandy's impact on Milford still so fresh for many residents, the city is once again bracing for possible flooding from a storm that is making its way into the area tonight.
The National Weather Service has issued a Coastal Flood Warning and a High Wind Warning for much of coastal Connecticut, including Milford. High tide is epected to come in at 10:09 p.m.
Tides could be three to five feet above normal and affect "vulnerable shore roads and/or basements," according to the National Weather Service. In response, the city has issued a Code Red Alert encouraging coastal residents to move their vehicles to higher ground.
The weather service's "High Wind Warning" is in effect through 6 a.m. Thursday, Dec. 27.
Forecasters say there could be winds of 25 to 40 mph and gusts of up to 60 mph.
"Winds of this magnitude will likely down trees and tree limbs, power lines and holiday decorations and cause minor property damage," according to the wind-warning forecast. "Power outages are possible. Driving high profile vehicles will be difficult, especially on elevated roadways and bridges."
Milford Patch will be monitoring the storm and its impact on the city. We encourage readers to share information about what's happening in your neighborhood via the comments on this article, and by uploading photos to the gallery.
