Some Northwestern Connecticut Towns – Not Avon Yet – Experience Power Outages As Storm Slams State

Two percent of Connecticut Light & Power customers are without power due to the February Nor'easter.

As a massive winter storm continues to slam the northeast with high winds and snow, Connecticut Light & Power is reporting 2 percent of customers in the state are without power, mainly along the shoreline and the northwestern regions.

No power outages have been reported in Avon but high winds have brought down tree limbs in nearby towns like New Hartford, Barkhamsted, Torrington and Litchfield.

There are a total of 33,788 outages reported on the CL&P website as of 10:37 p.m.

The National Weather Service is forecasting the total snow accumulation from the massive nor'easter to be around 18-24 inches in northern Connecticut. A blizzard warning remains in effect until 1 p.m. on Saturday.

Wind gusts of 40 mph and white-out conditions are possible throughout the night and into Saturday afternoon, according to the NWS website.

CL&P reported earlier on Friday that line and tree crews were stationed across the state ready to address reported outages as quickly as the weather permits.

If you lose power you can report the outage by calling CL&P at 800-286-2000.
