NEW CANAAN - After spending days in the dark, many New Canaan families could soon have their lives back to normal.

Some residents say they were thrilled to learn today that their power will likely be turned back on by this evening.

Connecticut Light and Power says crews are continuing to work 24-7 to restore power.  It says it has also enlisted the help of crews from Detroit and other locations across the country.

The utility says it has a time of restoration estimate for several local communities on its website.
