Storm Photo Gallery:
As Oxford braces for what could be one of the worst snow storms in recent memory, Oxford Patch is there to help bring you the information necessary to keep you and your loved ones safe.
This will serve as the hub of information about the storm - how many inches are out there, where the power is out, what parts of the borough to avoid - throughout the storm. We will update it regularly. And, since this is a community forum, we encourage readers to share with us information in our comments field and photos/videos in our media upload section.
Meanwhile, Naugatuck officials are preparing for the storm:
- Oxford schools are closed today, Friday, in preparation for the storm.
- The Department of Public Works employees are ready for the snow.
- The National Weather Service says there is no chance we won't see a snow storm on Friday, and that it could be a big one.
As always, stay safe.
