Malloy’s Storm Panel Continues Its Review

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP)   Reviews are continuing of the preparation and responses to the freak October snow storm and the remnants of Hurricane Irene, which hit in August.  Both storms left hundreds of thousands in Connecticut without power for days.

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s so-called “Two Storm Committee” is scheduled to meet Wednesday and Friday mornings.  The group is expected to make recommendations to Malloy in December.

Malloy said he hasn’t decided whether to call the General Assembly back to Hartford for a special session before they’re
scheduled to return for the regular session in February.

Malloy said he could receive a preliminary report from Witt Associates this week.  The Washington, D.C.-based consulting firm is reviewing how Connecticut Light and Power and The United Illuminating Co. responded to the snow storm that started Oct. 29.
