Still Recovering From Irene

Sep 2, 2011

Five days ago, Tropical Storm Irene battered Connecticut and put nearly a million utility customers in the dark.

Still, Governor Dannel Malloy says the biggest issue facing the state is “power, power, power, power.”

Homes from Bristol to East Haven have been destroyed by flooding. Outages have pushed back school openings by more than a week in some districts.

Today, an update on recovery efforts in the region. We’ll check in with Governor Malloy and Attorney General George Jepsen about where we stand today on issues of power and prices.

We’ll also hear from a reporter in Vermont who has been covering the devastating flooding in that state.

Are you without power? How are you adapting? What’s been your reaction to the government’s handling of Irene?
