FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. — With another big storm lashing Fairfield County, Connecticut Light & Power says it has extra resources in the region ready to respond to power outages Wednesday evening. 

High winds were predicted along the shoreline of Connecticut, CL&P says.  

"In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, additional utility resources remain on the job throughout the company's service area, and line and tree workers are staged around the state in areas expected to be impacted by the nor'easter," the company said in a news release. 

Customers can report outages and check for updates on restoration on the company's website. 

The company also urges its customers to be prepared for outages by stocking a storm kit. CL&P’s "Shopping for a Storm Kit" video on YouTube can help you prepare with the following items: 

· Flashlights with spare batteries
· A battery-operated radio or TV
· First-aid kit and medications
· Canned, freeze-dried or dehydrated foods
· A manual can opener
· Bottled water
· Baby or pet supplies (if needed)
· Important phone numbers

OLD TIMER:

Their idea of ready is having out-of-state contractors on speed dial. OUTSOURCING saves money that is not reflected in lower rates, but higher executive salary and bonuses.

nycsalmon:

How can they be `ready for the Nor'easter' or any other storm until all the power lines are buried and no longer vulnerable to tree movement? What would it take to get that to happen?

NCMommy:

Whoa!
CL+P is ready for the Nor'easter???? How about finishing the job left behind by Hurricane Sandy??????
