DARIEN, Conn. – Nearly 2,000 Connecticut Light & Power customers remained without power in Darien Monday morning, a week after Hurricane Sandy brought strong winds, rain and flooding to the area. With election day tomorrow, crews are focusing on restoring power to polling places, said CL&P officials.

An estimated 1,972 of 7,816 customers in Darien were without power at 5:30 a.m. Monday, down from 2,281 Sunday morning according to CL&P reports.

“Many large area outages have been restored, and crews are diligently working to restore all customers,” said Bill Quinlan, CL&P Senior Vice President of Emergency Preparedness. “In some areas, this effort requires that entire sections of the electric distribution system be rebuilt from scratch.”

More than 23,900 customers out of 1,240,246 total customers served by CL&P are out of power across Connecticut as of 5:30 a.m. Monday, down from more than 53,000 customers Sunday morning.

CL&P launched a “Restoration Estimates” web page at www.cl-p.com/restorationtimes to provide customers with estimated restoration times for repairs in their specific area. Customers can also call 800-286-2000 for the status of their outage. In previous statements, CL&P officials said they expected to have most power restored to customers by Tuesday
