East Hartford, CT - The National Weather Service has issued a severe thunderstorm watch in Northern Connecticut until 8:00 PM and until 10:00 PM for Southern Connecticut. Showers and thunderstorms may cause frequent lightning strikes and strong gusty winds are likely to cause some power outages.
In some instances, heavy rain showers may cause flash flooding in certain areas. Please remember to stay indoors and leave your windows closed and locked. Please remember keep any animals or pets indoors as well.
Due to the threat of severe weather, all group swim lessons have been cancelled for this evening. Lessons will be held lessons on the make-up day, Friday, July 9th, at the regularly scheduled lesson times. Private swim lessons will still be held tonight (weather permitting) but have been moved to Terry Pool. Our private swim lesson instructor has been in contact with private swim lesson participants regarding the location change. Drennan Pool is still temporarily closed for motor repairs. If the pool is out of use again tomorrow, swim lessons will be moved to an alternative location. Participants registered for swim lessons at Drennan will receive more information tomorrow when we receive an update on the status of the pool.
