WESTON - Downed wires and broken branches are making it tough to navigate Weston nearly four days after Irene.

Connecticut Light and Power now reports that about 41 percent of people in the community now have their power back.

Weston First Selectwoman Gayle Weinstein says power crews have been brought in from Detroit to help get things back online. In the meantime, she says the town is doing everything possible to keep residents comfortable.

Many have been going to the library and other places in town to charge their cell phones and get online. A shelter is also still open at the middle school.
