Weston, Redding and Easton Residents Still Struggling With Sandy’s Consequences

Even a week after deadly Hurricane Sandy, life is yet to come back on track in areas like Weston, Easton and Redding. The terrible hurricane brought along strong winds, thunder showers and floods, which have left this areas drastically affected.

It has been reported that over 2,500 residents getting power from Connecticut Light & Power and United Illuminating Company are living without power.

CL&P and UI officials asserted that they are trying to restore the power at least in some areas, as soon as possible as elections have been scheduled to be held tomorrow.

Reports suggest that Monday morning approximately 1,380 of 3,808 customers in Weston, 567 of 3,903 in Redding and 562 of 2,861 in Easton had no power in their houses. However, the officials' efforts have been fruitful enough to bring down the figures from that estimated on Sunday morning.

Bill Quinlan, CL&P Senior Vice President of Emergency Preparedness, said, "Many large area outages have been restored, and crews are diligently working. In some areas, this effort requires that entire sections of the electric distribution system be rebuilt from scratch".

CL&P has introduced a Restoration Estimates website, which will provide detailed information regarding the approximate restoration time of an area.
