According to WTNH-TV, “the strongest winds will be felt between now and 8 p.m.
“They will gradually decrease toward midnight.
“Winds overnight will still be gusty, but the damaging wind threat will diminish after midnight.”
“Breezy conditions are expected for Tuesday, but the worst is happening right now.”
Please, WTNH, be right!
Thanks Dan…I really appreciate your updates.
57MPH peak gust down here at Owenoke Park! http://www.wunderground.com/weatherstation/WXDailyHistory.asp?ID=KCTWESTP2
From your keyboard to God’s ears.
Thanks so much, Dan, for keeping us current. 🙂
Dan: I am out-of-state, with loved ones in Westport. At present, they are offline and in the dark (literally, no power). Your posts help keep me abreast of Sandy’s progress. Thank you.
I am advised that Ch 12 broadcast an errant
6 pm report that the Black Duck had broken loose.
Ok – so when are we getting our power back? Any guesses? Don’t hear any power crews around here…..
Let the complaining begin…storm is over, I don’t have power, what about ME? We were warned it would take time to get power back, please be patient and let people do their jobs to restore it. It may take awhile.
One of the things which was so frustrating about the last several storms was the delay in getting started with the clean up efforts and power restoration.
We were told emphatically this time would be different. We shall see….this is not just about me- the majority of the town (of the state) remains without power.
….percentage of westporters with power restored since 5am…. Zero.
I recognize the frustration that stems from the previous storms. I get it…believe me, but we were also told beforehand (THIS time, anyway) that it may take some time, perhaps up to a week or more to restore power and that the storm itself was much more powerful and had the potential to be much more devastating. I think the preparations and warnings prior to Sandy WERE different and time will tell whether restoration will come sooner rather than later.
Ok… So given that there was absolutely no work on power lines today from 5am until 5pm… And now after a full day we have had a whopping 2 percent restored…. Do you feel the same way? This is, in fact, EXACTLY what happened in the previous storms. All of the hearings have changed nothing.
No sign of CL&P trucks anywhere!
