    Some people in Connecticut woke up in the dark Sunday morning after powerful winds and rain swept through and knocked out power.

    Outage numbers have been bouncing back and forth all day. As of 3:30 p.m., Eversource was reporting 7,676 customers without power. In Griswold, 88 percent of town was out of power.

    United Illuminating reported 246 without power as of 3:37 p.m.

    In Old Saybrook winds whipped up the waves all morning. And while many would rather stay warm under the blankets, a few people braved the elements to watch the storm come in.
