Batten Down the Hatches for Irene

Irene is headed up the East Coast and its path is now just west of Bridgeport. Fairfield has ordered evaculations of the Fairfield Beach area tomorrow by 4 PM. If you live in Black Rock near the water consider moving inland as the storm is likely to hit at high tide on Sunday morning around 11 AM. This means not only a storm surge, but a storm tide (combination of storm surge and high tide), which can cause flooding beyond normal flood plain areas.

Update on Black Rock

black rock ct

Black Rock will be benefiting from commercial, state, federal, and charitable development money pouring into our small area. The area south of Fairfield Avenue and west of Ellsworth Street has always been the highest value area of Black Rock, but with so much development taking place north of Fairfield Avenue and east of Ellsworth Street, we may actually see a greater rise in value in these areas than the higher priced areas as they have more opportunity for appreciation.
