The vast majority of Cheshire residents and businesses are still without power this morning, however, progress is being seen in regards to restoration efforts.
As of late Monday night, Connecticut Light and Power was reporting that 90 percent of Cheshire was without electricity. This morning, a report on the company's website showed that the number had been reduced to 79 percent of the town. According to CL&P, there are 11,236 customers in Cheshire. At 7:45 a.m. Tuesday morning, 8,987 customers were reported as still being affected by the power outage.
There is still no word as to when full power will be restored, or which areas of town are receiving the most attention. Yesterday, on The Cheshire Herald Facebook page, local residents reported that power had been restored to areas near Elim Park and that tree and power line crews had been spotted along Route 10 near Cheshire Correctional Institution and on Academy Road.
We will be updating the website with any new information as it becomes available.
(Note: The Cheshire Herald office is once again closed this morning.)
