As Darien recovers from Friday nor'easter, Eversource estimates power restoration by Sunday night
Currently 790 Eversource customers or 10% remain without power in Darien after a nor’easter hit the east coast Friday.
Strong winds knocked down trees and wires into the night on Friday in Darien, blocking various roads and causing sparking wires.
Some roads remain closed Saturday morning as clean-up continues.
"We expect the vast majority of our customers to be restored by Sunday night at 9 p.m. For a small number of customers in the hardest hit areas, like Greenwich and Stonington, restoration efforts may continue until the later evening hours Sunday,” Eversource spokesman Mitch Gross told The Darien Times Saturday morning.
Gross pointed out that many roads remain blocked throughout the state.
Currently, 40,383 Eversource customers or 3% remain without power in Connecticut.
First Selectman Jayme Stevenson said as of 5:30 a.m. Saturday, Darien’s Department of Public Works had cleared all roads that had trees with and without wires.
“There were some locations that still had wires down. Line crews should be here,” Stevenson said.
Darien Ice Rink is currently without power and the status of the FCIAC hockey final scheduled for 7 p.m. Saturday night between Greenwich and Ridgefield is pending power restoration.
Metro-North reduced service Friday night after 10 p.m. but said service was back to normal
