Malloy Tells Commissioners to Help Investigation

There are still 18,000 people with no power.

Gov. Dannel Malloy has told his state agency commissioners to help in an investigation into why hundreds of thousands of residents and businesses had no power for more than a week following a powerful pre-Halloween snowstorm.

At a meeting on Tuesday with the commissioners, Malloy also urged agencies to review action plans and how they responded to the storm and its aftermath.

Connecticut Light & Power says about 18,000 customers are still without power on Tuesday afternoon, 10 days after the storm dumped a foot of snow in parts of the state and brought down trees, branches and power lines.

CL&P has promised that all customers will have power restored by Wednesday night, something an official in Simsbury appears to think is a bit optimistic.

The state investigation will look at restoration plans by CL&P and United Illuminating.
