CT Snowstorm Devastates

800,000 without power across Connecticut

Just as Connecticut was beginning to recuperate from the damage caused by Tropical Storm Irene, an early snow over the state left more havoc in its wake.

On Sunday night during a press conference at the state’s emergency operations center, president and chief operating officer of Connecticut Light and Power Jeff Butler announced that the damaged cause by the snow was “five times worse” than that caused by Irene, reports the CT Post.

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy declared a state of emergency on Saturday, urging President Obama to declare Connecticut a federal disaster area. This would allow for federal emergency funds to pay for cleanup.

Malloy said, “We are expecting extensive and long term power outage. This is a historic storm, never before in anyone’s recollection or anyone’s review of history has such a storm hit the state so early.”  Nine representatives of the Federal Emergency Management Agency were in the state Sunday surveying the damage.  At 7:30 pm, more than 800,000 were still without power.  Officials said it could take several days before all power is finally restored.

Many schools are closed due to the loss of power, and on Sunday night, emergency shelters and warming centers were open to aid residents without power who would otherwise have to brave potentially record low temperatures at home.

Remaining strong winds, gusting up to 29 mph, are causing more outages and hundreds of accidents were reported across the state caused by slippery snow, downed trees and poor visibility.  On Saturday evening, Governor Malloy signed an executive order banning non-emergency vehicles due to dangerous conditions.
