BERLIN, CT - Connecticut Light & Power (CL&P) crews are responding to power outages caused by record-breaking snowfall and high winds. Approximately 35,000 CL&P customers are without power as a result of damage caused by the blizzard.

“Road conditions are hazardous and have made travel difficult for our line workers and tree workers,” said Bill Quinlan, CL&P Senior Vice President of Emergency Preparedness. “We will continue working around the clock and expect to make strong progress in the harder hit southeastern part of the state; however, some customers may be without power for a day or more.”

As crews are dispatched to make specific repairs, the estimated restoration times for those repairs will be updated under the “My Outage Status” link at and at 800-286-2000. When those specific restoration estimates become available, CL&P will also be making periodic calls to update customers.

Safety is always the top priority and carbon monoxide poisoning is a serious risk. Any customer using a generator should make sure it has been installed properly and is only used outdoors. CL&P and its sister company, Yankee Gas also remind customers to keep natural gas meters and outdoor appliance vents clear of snow.

With very cold temperatures predicted for tonight, CL&P also reminds customers to stay safe and never use a stove or grill as a heating source. Shelter information is available by calling 2-1-1 or visiting
