The police department is ready for action as they brace for potentially bad weather to roll in later today.

With a forecast calling for the possibility of high winds and heavy rains, Sgt. Jeremiah Marron said the police department has a plan in place to deal with any issues that result from inclement weather.

"So far we haven't had any accidents as a result of the storm," Marron said. "We have had some branches come down and some minor flooding on Post Road but that's it."

Marron said the department will continue to monitor conditions as they expect the weather to get worse later in the day.
