Over 100 without power; Main Street is open

Saturday, 6 a.m. — All power is on in Ridgefield, though some residents had to wait more than 24 hours for restoration.

Friday, 5 a.m. — More than 100 CL&P customers were without power at this hour in the wake of yesterday’s high winds.

While outages here never approached the high numbers in area communities, Ridgefield now has more customers offline than most towns in the area.

Meanwhile, temperatures are as low as 21 degrees.

Line crews were in town overnight, and have fixed the line knocked down by a tree on northern Main Street, Ridgefield Police report.

Main Street by Casagmo is open again.

However, the north end of Tackora Trail by the St. Pius X retreat house was still closed.

All other roads in town are believed to be open, police said, though some, like Pin Pack Road, may be a squeeze.

CL&P reported at 5 a.m. that Ridgefield had 104 customers without service. Wilton had 171 customers offline, Danbury 78, and Weston 65. All three had more than 1,000 customers each without service yesterday.

Statewide, 4,200 are offline.
