If you should see a blue and silver helicopter hovering low over electrical lines in the coming weeks, there's no need for alarm.

Eversource will be conducting aerial inspections of electrical equipment throughout Connecticut, according to a news release the utility issued Thursday. The helicopter is "equipped with heat-sensing, infrared scanning technology" that can detect potential issues with equipment, the release said.

The inspections, which are semi-annual, will begin on Friday, Feb. 14, and continue through Feb. 28, weather permitting. The flights will take place between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.

Towns where the flights will occur include East Lyme, Ledyard, Lyme, Montville, North Stonington and Waterford, among others.
