BERLIN, CT - Connecticut Light & Power (CL&P) is preparing for the second part of a one-two punch from Mother Nature, as a Nor'easter plagues the region with high winds predicted along the shoreline. In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, additional utility resources remain on the job throughout the company's service area, and line and tree workers are staged around the state in areas expected to be impacted by the Nor'easter.

While CL&P is prepared to respond to any weather-related outages, the company also encourages customers to once again be prepared by assembling or restocking a storm kit and making arrangements to look out for their families, friends and neighbors.

CL&P’s "Shopping for a Storm Kit" video on YouTube ( highlights the contents of a storm kit, including:
· Flashlights with spare batteries
· A battery-operated radio or TV
· First-aid kit and medications
· Canned, freeze-dried or dehydrated foods
· A manual can opener
· Bottled water
· Baby or pet supplies (if needed)
· Important phone numbers

Customers who are dependent on electricity for critical medical needs are urged to make preparations now to switch to a backup source or move to an alternate location if necessary.
