Storm clean up in Greenwich continues

GREENWICH - Road crews and utility workers have been out all morning in Greenwich trying to clear away debris and remove downed power lines that are blocking streets and creating an obstacle course for drivers.

The storm moved through with wind gusts of 25 mph and a large number of lightning strikes.

The storm knocked down power lines and tree limbs, blocking roads.

The town says the debris could have been a problem for school buses, and consequently school openings were delayed.

By late morning, Greenwich officials say they still had four major roads closed and six secondary ones.

The town's Director of Emergency Management says he spoke with CL&P officials who told him there were still 1,300 customers without power in the late morning. These residents should have electricity back by 8 p.m.
