Storm Clean-Up Continues as Thousands Are Still Without Power

The clean-up continues more than two days after a strong storm moved through the state and thousands of people are still in the dark on Saturday.

The powerful storm moved through Connecticut Halloween night into Friday morning. High winds brought down trees and ripped down power lines across the state. At times, winds gusted to more than 60 miles per hour, according to NBC Connecticut First Alert meteorologist Bob Maxon.

On Saturday at 6 p.m., Eversource reports 1,935 people are still without power.

Governor Ned Lamont said during a news conference on Friday morning that the severe storm had knocked power out to close to 100,000 people.

Eversource said it has called in private electrical contractors and tree contractors to assist with repairs, as well as additional help from New York, Pennsylvania and Kentucky.
