WILTON, Conn. This message for residents of the Town of Wilton was recorded Tuesday, Aug. 30, at 10 a.m. It contains the latest information possible concerning power outages and restorations and other information that could be useful to our residents to aid them in recovering from the effects of Tropical Storm Irene.
Residents are reminded to stay clear of all downed power lines, as they pose a significant electrocution hazard. Currently 75 percent of Connecticut Light & Power customers are without power throughout the town, down 6 percent from overnight. Again this morning CL&P and the town's Department of Public Works crews are out working to remove road blockages. Residents may experience power fluctuations at times as crews work to clear the wires and begin to restore power.
For residents without power and/or water, provisions have been made at the Wilton Family YMCA, located at 404 Danbury Road across from the high school, for families to use shower and lavatory facilities at no charge. For those needing access to power to use their laptop computers or charge their cell phones, the Wilton Library , Trackside Teen Center and the Comstock Community Center are open for this purpose.
Residents should be assured all that is possible is being done to help our residents recover from this very devastating storm. However, they should expect that power will not be fully restored for at least several days, if not more in some instances. We ask for your continued patience as we all work together to resolve the major issues facing the Town of Wilton.
