STORM UPDATE: Power outages persist, one road still blocked

CLP logoUpdate: Friday, 2/1, 5:30 AM: While Wednesday night’s storm may be forgotten already by most towns in Fairfield County, lingering power outages persist in Weston.

According to CL&P, there are 65 customers in Weston this morning without power. Statewide 4,244 are out. According to CL&P’s website, the utility company is working around the clock to restore service.

Roads that were blocked yesterday from downed trees and wires have been cleared except for Eleven O’Clock Road, near Kellogg Hill Road. There are still downed wires in that area and the road is partially blocked at this time. Motorists are advised to use caution.

Update: 11 AM: CL&P is reporting more than 500 customers in Weston are still without power.

According to a notice sent by the school district at about 10:45, among those without power are Weston Middle School and Weston High School. The schools reported  that power was restored briefly to the two schools, but they are currently running all life safety services such as fire alarms with generator power, and heat is not an issue.

All four schools will dismiss at normal times.

Update 8:15 a.m. Power is being restored throughout town. CL&P reports that 646 customers in Weston are still without power.

6:20 a.m.   Following last night’s windy storm, Connecticut Light and Power Company is reporting 1,154 of its customers in Weston, 30% of the town, is without power this morning.
