UPDATE, 1:52 p.m., Sunday:

Tropical Storm Henri brought some expected flooding to Darien, but with a right turn it ended up a bit farther from here, so wind and rain are well under the worst scenarios that meteorologists said were possible. Town beaches are closed, and expected flooding at Pear Tree Point Beach occurred, First Selectman Jayme Stevenson said in a 1 p.m. Code Red message to the town. “The storm is still expected to bring us bands of heavy rain and winds of 15 to 25 mph with gusts up to 35 mph this afternoon. Coastal, river and stream flooding and power outages from downed trees should be expected,” Stevenson said in the message. As of 1:37 p.m., Eversource reported no customers without power in Darien, fewer than two each in New Canaan and Norwalk, and only 63 in Stamford.
