More than 50 percent still without power in Redding

REDDING - Residents say their patience has just about run out after more than 50 percent of the town is still without power after last weekend?s nor'easter.

Chilly temperatures and no power have led many residents to flee to the Redding Community Center, where power and heat are abundant. According to Connecticut Light & Power's (CL&P) website, 100 percent of its Redding customers lost power in the storm.

A CL&P official says it is aiming to have power restored by Sunday, but many residents say they will believe that when they see it.

Those in charge of Redding Community Center say the center is open from 7 a.m. to midnight every day. Early storm leaves thousands without power in southwestern CTStorm Resource LinksWeather CenterTraffic and Weather
