Storm & Hurricane Information

The Old Lyme Office of Emergency Management urges all residents to prepare for this upcoming weather event.  Individuals in low lying shoreline areas should take precautions for possible low level flooding.  Materials for sand bags will be available (outside of the gates) at the Public Works garage on Machnik Drive for residents. Please be advised that some assembly is required for those needing sandbags.

Forecasted winds run a risk of creating downed trees and power lines.  Please take the time to secure or store items in your yard and to review your personal preparedness plans for potential power outages.  Further storm prep information can be found at:

Town Wide Alerts

Our Old Lyme Alerts will allow us to provide you with important messages in the way that you specify - texts or calls to your cell phone, calls to your home or business phone, emails to your home or work. You tell us the best way to contact you, and we’ll do the rest.

Importance of Notifications

Our community has weathered more than our share of serious storms in the last few years and our Town wants to help you be prepared for - and stay safe during - any emergency situation.

  • Irene, Sandy, and Nemo left most of us without power for a week.
  • Our Emergency Operations Center ran efficiently.
  • The Respite Center at the Senior Center was opened for hot meals and electrical power for recharging phones and laptops.
  • Volunteers helped deliver newsletters and supplies to neighborhoods in need.

But we were not able to reach all of you with updates on conditions and we want to do the best we can to communicate with all of you when emergencies occur or are imminent. For example, we can let you know:

  • If a health crisis poses a threat to our community
  • If a fire or accident will restrict access to some neighborhoods
  • If we have been advised to take safety precautions
  • If our community needs to prepare for another impending hurricane or winter storm

Let’s work together to keep everyone in our community safe.
