Video: Governor Malloy Tours Stonington Borough

Governor Dannel P. Malloy said he understood people are frustrated but he gave no estimate on when power will be restored

On Wednesday morning, Governor Dannel P. Malloy, Senator Richard Blumenthal and Congressman Joe Courtney toured the damage Hurricane Sandy left in Stonington Borough.

Joined by First Selectman Ed Haberek, Selectman George Crouse, state Sen. Andrew Maynard and state Rep. Diana Urban a handful of residents and media from across the state, Malloy, Blumenthal and Courtney saw downed power lines, uprooted trees, broken sidewalks and damaged docks. But with 95 percent of Stonington still in the dark the main question on many people’s minds was ‘when is the power going back on.’

Haberek told Malloy he appreciated his help in talking with Connecticut Light & Power. Numerous power company trucks were on Route 1 Wednesday morning, but there is still no estimate on when the power is coming back on.

“I understand the frustration,” Malloy said.

I went to an appointment in Norwich today, and between Stonington and Norwich over two different routes I saw zero power company crews working or staged or in transit.
