CL&P Power OutagesCL&P Power Outages, This is probably hard to imagine now, but it is possible that the sun can look before today is over. At least that is what some meteorologists predict that Irene continues to lash the state courts continue to ratchet and power in numbers.

CL & P officials say more than 400,000 customers without electricity in the state. United Illuminating has about 100,000 customers without power this morning. CL & courts weights have increased dramatically during the morning, when it had 60,000 customers without electricity. CL & P officials say they cannot begin to restore power until after Irene passed by the state, which is expected to be in the late afternoon.

Some cities, like Marlborough, East Hampton, Chester, Clinton, are almost entirely without electricity, while others, such as Enfield and Suffield, have less than 1 percent of households without electricity.

In Portland, Route 66 near Clements Castle is closed because of downed power lines and poles.

According to meteorologist Joe Furey Irene is moving at 25 mph and was moving along the borders of Connecticut and New York. Furey, in a report this morning on WTIC radio, said Irene thattrack media should be out of state at the end of the day and the sun can even peaking out.

Tracking Storm Irene indicates the weight of the state come from 11 am that is exactly when high tide occurs along the coast of Connecticut, a situation that has state officials worried about the storms and tides unusually higher in cities along the southwestern part of Connecticut.

Some 32 cities, mostly along the southwest coast are under mandatory evacuation orders. Almost all cities have opened emergency shelters and about 2,000 people have entered shelters, the governor Dannel P. Malloy said this morning.

Malloy has banned tractor-trailer truck traffic on the roads of Connecticut and he closed the Merritt and Wilbur Cross streets at 7 am today. Also ordered that all non-essential traffic off the state highways and warned anyone who ventures into the challenge that so that emergency officials may not be able to help if they get into trouble.

The Housatonic River, Malloy said, has affected the level of flooding and officials are expected to open the gates on the River. To lower the water level. Malloy, however, has warned that other rivers and streams are expected to flood and could result in flash flooding.

Numerous local roads are closed throughout the state because of fallen trees and downed power lines.

One person was killed in Prospect this morning, Malloy said, because of downed power lines and Irene winds expected to bring even more throughout the state, some 60 kilometers per hour, while moving out of state. As a result, power outages are expected to rise throughout the day, state officials said.
