Rowland headed to armory amid mass power outage
With more than 182,000 Connecticut customers without power, Governor Rowland (R-CT) is headed to the state armory for a meeting with state department heads. Rowland was on vacation Thursday, but when the power went out, he activated the state's emergency operation center at the armory. Members of the departments of public safety and public health and the National Guard will meet with Rowland, who is expected there within the hour. State officials say there are already more outages in Connecticut right now than at the height of this winter's ice storm.
