Power is being restored. Twenty-one
crews are actively working and are hitting the town hard. Fifteen additional
crews (line and tree) are being added tonight. Eversource reminds everyone that
we are now at a point that ALL wires should be considered live. If you are
using an improperly installed generator, using it will slow down the recovery.
Please refer to our website for proper generator use. The detection of such a
generator will cause the crew to move from your location to another location.
Again, safety is the first priority. All wires should be considered live.
Eversource also reminds us that they may need to bring down your power while in
the process of restoring other areas. Please be patient, it will be restored as
quickly as possible.
Travel our roads slowly for safety. There are crews in the roadways as well as
tree and limbs close to the edge of the road.
Pomperaug High School is open as a shelter, charging station, showers and will
be serving some meals.
Thank you for continued patience and cooperation.
