This was Hillspoint Road, near Hales Road, a few minutes ago:
Similar scenes are repeated throughout Westport, after last night’s rain-and-wind storm.
We were one of the hardest hit towns in the area. Eversource reports over 3,200 customers without power — 26% of its customers.
If my situation is any indication, it might be a while before it’s restored. I reported my outage — near Playhouse Square — via their website, and got this reply:
Our outage reporting system is currently unavailable. Please contact us at 800-826-2000 and a representative would be happy to assist you with reporting your outage. We apologize for the inconvenience.
I called. The wait time is 28 minutes.
Which pales, I know, in comparison to Puerto Rico. Six weeks after Hurricane Maria, up to 80% of the island is still without power.
