Emergency Officials Update Gov on Storm

Officials who have been manning the Emergency Operations Center at the State Armory are updating Governor Rell this morning on conditions caused by the blizzard.

The blizzard blanketed the state with a foot of snow and wind gusts of 60 mph took down power lines.

But Homeland Security Officials say they only received two requests for help–from Greenwich to help with a traffic situation caused by an accident and from Enfield after a fire destroyed a mixed-use building in the Thompsonville section of town.

Connecticut Light and Power says it doesn’t know when everyone’s lights will go back on.   The utility is worried about the safety of line workers in the bucket trucks, which can only withstand winds of 35 mph.
