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.
Ledyard has 1,465 CL&P customers without power.
Montville, Stonington, Ledyard Old Lyme, Lyme, Groton, Waterford, and New London are included in the towns subject to extended outage periods.
