Four Connecticut Deaths Blamed On Storm

HARTFORD, Conn. (CBS Connecticut & AP) – The number of deaths in Connecticut due to last week’s snow storm has risen to four after a fatal all-terrain vehicle accident and a woman’s death due to carbon monoxide.

Enfield Police said Tuesday the man, identified as 43-year-old Christopher A. Noyes, died Monday after his ATV struck a low-lying wire. He says police were investigating the other fatality and had no details.

Also in Enfield, authorities say an 80-year-old woman died from carbon monoxide poisoning.

Two people died in separate car accidents in Hebron and Hartford since the storm hit Saturday.

Meanwhile, Connecticut Light & Power said Tuesday that about 680,000 customers were without electricity, down from a peak of 830,000.

The United Illuminating Co. reported that about 4,000 customers were without power Tuesday, a day after it said power would be restored entirely. Bill Reis, a utility vice president, said there were more outages than projected Sunday.
