Eversource estimates power restoration town-by-town
Eversource expected that 90% of all of its customers in the state would have power by Sunday night.
The company has been the target of criticism for how long it has been taking to restore power to residents in the wake of Tropical Storm Isaias on Tuesday afternoon. As of Sunday afternoon, 138,000 customers in Connecticut still didn't have power.
Eversource posted town-by-town restoration estimates on its website. In southeastern Connecticut, towns and estimates for power restoration include: Ledyard, 6 p.m. Monday; Lyme, noon Monday; Old Lyme, 11:59 p.m. Monday; and Salem, 6 p.m. Monday. The other towns in the region were said to be “substantially complete” by Sunday night.
Eversource said more than 2,300 line, tree and support crews were on the ground Sunday, which included utility workers from across the U.S. and Canada helping Eversource employees.
