5/21/2018 - Storm Update - Monday morning

Eversource

  • If you do not have power, please call Eversource at 1-800-286-2000. They want to be assured that your outage is not overlooked. There are incidents where Eversource crews are reporting restoration but may not be aware of individual situations.
  • 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 report from last night: www.southbury-ct.org/filestorage/6821/25397/Eversource_CT_Southbury_Emergency_Briefing_5-20-18_5pm.pdf.
