NORWALK, Conn. – Power is still off to 29 percent of CL&P’s Norwalk customers, the city says on its website.
“We have seen an improved performance from CL&P and hope power restoration for the vast majority of citizens will come prior to the official Tuesday-at-midnight projection,” Mayor Richard Moccia said in a Notify Norwalk message.
Building and code enforcement officials are checking flooded houses Saturday to take them offline so that surrounding circuits can be activated, the release continues. That includes about 30 houses in Harbor View, 40 SNEW customers and some homes in Rowayton.
Polling places are a topic of concern as Roton Middle School and West Rocks Middle School still do not have power. CL&P has announced that it is working to restore power to polling places in time for Tuesday’s election. The company promises to provide generators at election locations if necessary.
Meanwhile, the school kids have Monday off because of the storm damage and Tuesday off because of the election. If you see a school bus Monday it’s because drivers are doing test runs to check the safety of their routes.
FEMA has set up an office at NEON (Norwalk Economic Opportunity Now) to handle disaster claims. That’s at 98 South Main St.
The city reminds everyone to use 911 only for emergencies. Report issues to customer service at 203-854-3200.
