UPDATE: And Then There Was One...1% Without Power

CL&P said late yesterday it had repaired Montville's electric system's 'main backbone' and that neighborhoods were being reconnected. This morning, its outage map shows that 364 of the near 8,000 customers, or 4% remain in the

Update at 4:15 p.m. 

According to Montville Emergency Management Director Raymond Occhialini, "only 1% power outage or about 100 customers," as of 2:30 p.m. Saturday.

If you are one of the 1% that does not have electricity, call CL&P at 800-286-2000. 

Update at 9:20 a.m.

UPDATE on Mountview Apartments & power issues @ Kitemaug and Massapeag:

I just spoke to Mayor McDaniel. He is at Mountview Apartments right now with Ed Shafer, Deputy EMD delivering food AND there is a line crew there; they needed a new line, he said. 
Re: Kitemaug and Massapeag. He said the minute he gets back to his office he will call CL&P because those areas should have power, he said.

Update, Sat. Nov. 3 at 6:50 a.m.:

CL&P advised the Friday later afternoon that it had repaired the "main backbone" of the power system and was reconnecting neighborhoods. 

As of 5:30 a.m. this morning when Montville Patch again checked the CL&P power outage map, it showed that 364 of the near 8,000 customers, or 4% remain in the dark. On the bright side, literally and figuratively, that means more than 7,000 homes have power this chilly morning. 


Original story:

According to Montville  Emergency Management Director Raymond Occhialini, the town was notified that the "main backbone of the electric system has been repaired and that neighborhoods are being reconnected."

Here's the very important part: If you do not have power call CL&P once again at 800-286-2000 to report your outage. That's the only way they know who's still out; you must call them!

Occhialini said in his Facebook message to the community that CL&P crews "are still crews working Montville."

Ron McDaniel how the hell didn't you know? You live one street from Kitemaug and as I understand it your street either.

I should correct my previous comment. The Mayor live on Riverview one street away from Kitemaug and was also without power all week. But he didn't know?
