CL&P: Customers in Southeastern Connecticut Won't See Power Restoration for 24 Hours or More

Mitch Gross said access to roadways to make repairs and the coordination of that effort is the issue.


Following a routine call to Mitch Gross, CL&P Spokesman, Patch learned that customers in southeastern Connecticut without power can expect to be that way for 24 hours or more.

“You are the first one -- I’m telling; this just came out. Some sections of Southeastern Connecticut may not have power for 24 hours or longer. The amount of work that needs to be done and the (issue of) access to get to that work, is the problem. Roads must be opened so we can get in and assess damage," Gross said.

Groton, Montville, Stonington, Ledyard, Old Lyme, Lyme, Waterford, and New London are included in the towns subject to extended outage periods.

Since temperatures are expected to dip to 20 overnight, Groton town officials were advising people concerned about lack of heat to go to the shelter at the Groton Senior Center and to drive carefully.
