Obstacle Course

WestportNow.com Image
Members of Westport’s Staples High School Cross Country team take the damage caused by the remnants of Tropical Storm Ernesto in stride as they approach a downed telephone pole on Berndale Drive at Leslie Lane late Monday. Residents along Leslie Lane were less sanguine about the situation. Along with many other Westport residents blocked on dead-end streets, they were unhappy that they were prevented from driving out of Leslie Lane from Saturday at about 5 p.m. until 4 p.m. Monday. Town officials said the delays in clearing the roads were caused by the need for confirmation by CL&P that the wires involved were not energized and the widespread number of trees and wires down.

Power Restored to Many Homes

(UPDATE)Utility crews working through the night restored power to hundreds of Westport homes which had been blacked out since Saturday’s storm.

Connecticut Light & Power Co. said 332 Westport customers were without power at 11 p.m., down from 3,366 at midnight Sunday.

A CL&P official said the company hoped to restore 99 percent of its customers by midnight and full restoration by mid-day Tuesday.

About 1,131 customers in the North Avenue-Long Lots Road area got their power mid-evening, accounting for much of the late day reduction in the numbers of those still in the dark, the utility said.
