NORWALK - The power is slowly coming back on across the state, but Connecticut Light & Power (CL&P) says more than 400,000 customers are still without electricity.
CL&P traveled to Greenwich, Stamford, Norwalk and Westport today to help local officials devise a plan to get the lights back on. The utility says it wants to work in conjunction with the towns and cities to restore power as crews clean up debris and fallen trees.
CL&P also says that between 200-300 additional crews are headed to the state to help repair damaged lines, but says in some cases, it could be another week before it is fully restored.
Officials say crews will be working 16-hour shifts, especially at priority areas, which include hospitals and schools.
