Forty Simsbury CL&P Customers Remain Without Power Following Sandy

The latest CL&P report shows that 40 customers out of over 4,000 who lost power remain in the dark on Friday.

Submitted by the Town of Simsbury

As of 10:30 am Friday morning, forty CL&P customers on thirteen different streets are without power in Simsbury. 

“While we are grateful that progress has been made, we are extremely concerned that we still have residents without power, particularly as we’re expecting colder temperatures through the weekend” said Mary Glassman, First Selectman. 

“If you don’t have power, make sure that you have notified CL&P by calling them at 1-800-286-2000, even if you’ve notified them before.  I’m also asking residents without power to contact us at 860-658-3100 so that we can be sure that CL&P’s information is accurate.” 

Residents are also urged to seek alternative shelter, and residents needing assistance are urged to contact the Town’s Social Services Department at 860-658-3283 or the Town at 860-658-3100.  “We will make sure that every resident without power has a warm place to sleep,” Glassman added.

CL&P has informed the Town that crews are expected to continue work in Simsbury this afternoon and that full restoration is expected by Monday.  “While CL&P tells us that it is possible and even likely that power will be restored before Monday, they can’t give us firm timelines for specific addresses.  As difficult as it is, residents need to plan on being without power through the weekend,” said Glassman.  Town officials have been in constant contact with CL&P representatives seeking restoration estimates and urging prompt action for Town residents.

Thank you Mary and all who worked relentlessly to keep CL&P here to finish the job!

Ms. Glassman's publicity hunting did about zip in getting the power restored. The line crews did this. In any event, town residents should have gotten the message the last time that they have a responsibility themselves to be prepared for emergencies. Our children learn by example and constant complaining is not the message I want them to hear. A little resiliency, self reliance and grace under fire are much better.

I agree and see you are the one with the constant complaining and publicity hunting. Ms. Glassman was out in front demanding CL&P trucks restore power last year. Again, last year. Our responders did a marvelous job this year. Our children will learn by their example, not by your politicizing of the storm.
