11/2/2011 5:50:03 PM EST – This is a Code Red update for the Town of Weston on Wednesday November 2nd at 6:00 PM.
We have made significant progress in the power restoration process over the past 24 hours and expect similar results tomorrow. CL&P has been increasing the number of line crews working in town and will continue to do so as they become available. We are cautiously optimistic that CL&P will beat their initial restoration goal of 99% restored by Sunday.
At the present time, we are not comfortable with the time estimates given for individual household restoration. Please do not consider these estimates as definitive.
We are trying our best to clear debris and downed wires from roads as quickly as possible. Please stay away from downed wires. They may still be energized from back feed from generators.
The comfort station located at the rear entrance of the Weston Middle School will remain open until 9 pm.
We know that this has been a trying time for our residents, particularly with the cool weather. We truly appreciate your patience as we work with CL&P to restore power as quickly as possible.
This has been a Code Red update from the Town of Weston.
