UPDATE: As of 11 a.m., 100% of the town of Weston is without power according to CL&P.

Weston public officials are urging residents to stay home and “sheltered in place” while workers clear the roadways and restore power. Close to 100 roads are reported to be closed due to downed trees and wires.

Selectman Dave Muller, who is acting as Weston’s public information officer in Sandy’s aftermath, said “access into and out of town is very limited.”

Because of hazardous conditions on the roadways the town is not opening a comfort station at the high school at this time so as not to put people at risk on the roads.  Officials will be meeting at 3 p.m. today to reassess the situation.

Power crews were staged in Weston before the storm hit and at least two power crews – a tree crew and a line crew are working now on restoring power.
