Shelter, Showers Open, Cleanup Begins

by Christopher O'Brien

For Wolcott residents still without power due to Hurricane Sandy, the town has opened the town’s Senior Center on Nichols Rd. as a warming and charging station for electrical devices. Any resident is welcome to stop by to recharge until 9 pm.

Tyrrell School has also been opened for showers. People using the showers will be checked in and should enter the school from the South Entrance.

Schools will open on time tomorrow.
369 CL&P customers are still without power in town as of 5:15 pm. If you haven’t reported your power outage, be sure to do so by calling (800)286-2000 or by following this online link. A crew was in Wolcott makin repairs during the storm but they have been reassigned to other towns that currently have 100% of their infrastructure out. The Town’s power liasion says they will be back. The utility is trying to get large numbers of customers back online as fast as possible.

Overall, Wolcott fared well, along with other towns in Central Connecticut. While large and small trees certainly fell causing damage to cars, homes and powerlines, the extent is much more maneageble than the tangled mess of Hurricane Irene and the winter storm from last year.

Residents are encouraged to check on your neighbors – especially elderly ones – and help out in town or in other towns which suffered greater problems.
