Hundreds in Connecticut are still without power days after whipping wind storms struck the area, toppling trees, branches and power lines.

As of 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 26, 1,496 of Eversource’s 1,273,665 customers (.12 percent) remain without power. The United Illuminating Company is reporting an additional six outages, impacting six customers.

In Fairfield County, outages were still being reported in Greenwich, Newtown, Redding and Ridgefield. Power is expected to be restored by the end of the day.

According to Eversource, line and tree crews have been working around-the-clock restoring power to thousands of customers impacted damaging wind storm.

“Despite the dangerous winds and challenging conditions, crews have restored power to more than 72,000 homes and businesses since the storm began. The energy company is on track to restore the vast majority of customers by late Tuesday night.

“We recognize how difficult it is for our customers to be without electricity, especially during these cold days and nights and we continue to make progress restoring their power,” Eversource Vice President of Electric Operations in Connecticut Michael Hayhurst, said. “Our crews have done a tremendous job. They’re there for our customers when they’re needed most and are committed to working until every customer is restored.”
