Wilton gets relief from out-of-town utility crews

WILTON - The Wilton area is getting some much needed relief, thanks to out-of-state utility crews.

Workers who traveled for two days from South Carolina worked 16-hour shifts to restore power to a town where many are still in the dark after a rare October snowstorm.

First Selectman Bill Brennan said he was frustrated that Connecticut Light and Power didn't have more crews prepared for the storm.

CL&P's chief operating officer addressed these new concerns during a press conference with Gov. Dan Malloy (D-Conn.), saying the utility company is also frustrated after dealing with two major weather events in two months.

So far, Wilton schools have canceled three days of classes this week. They have yet to make a decision about when to resume classes.
