A message from the Clinton First Selectman:
Good morning this is First Selectman Willie Fritz with an update on Hurricane Sandy.
The town is currently about 95% without power. Crews will finish clearing lines of limbs and making everything safe so that the restoration of power can begin. We are hoping power will be restored by the weekend.
Our shelter at the Eliot School is closed, however, we are providing hot showers at Eliot daily from 1pm until 8pm. (Please bring your own supplies.)
We will be sponsoring a community pasta dinner at the Eliot School tomorrow, Thursday, Nov. 1 from 5pm to 8pm.
Andrews Memorial Town Hall is open as a charging station daily from 9am until 8pm. We have hot coffee, some food, water, military ready meals and a water station.
Schools are closed until Monday Nov. 5.
We urge residents to be patient. CL&P is cooperating and progress is being made. Our crews will begin clean-up beginning on Thursday, please bring brush to the curb we will begin to pick it up.
I will send another update tomorrow.
