WESTPORT - Utility crews in Connecticut are continuing their efforts to get everyone's lights turned back on.

Connecticut Light and Power now has a temporary staging area set up at Sherwood Island State Park in Westport.

The company says it has more than 3,000 line workers and more than 1,500 tree workers in the field, and more arrived today.

CL&P says it's made significant progress, but knows that's of little significance to those still without power. As of this evening, more than 90,000 CL&P customers are still without electricity.

Both utility companies say they hope to have 95 percent or more of their customers restored by Monday or Tuesday.
