While there was some progress made last night and this morning, as of 1PM today (10/31/17), there are still 315 (11%) Eversource customers without power and four roads are still closed due to downed wires/trees.
Town officials will continue to work with Eversource to make our roads as safe as possible and restore power to all properties. Please contact Eversource directly at 1-800-286-2000 to check on the status of your restoration. We have been told that all properties in Willington will be restored by 6PM on Wed, Nov. 1.
The Willington Public Library is open today until 8PM for residents needing to recharge electronics and area grocery stores, restaurants and gas stations are open. If you know of someone who has medical needs, please contact the Willington Fire Department #1 at (860) 429-0288. If there is an emergency, please call 911.
Please be aware that today is Halloween and the decision to participate in trick-or-treating is a decision for each child/parent and also each homeowner to make. If you choose to participate, please take safety precautions as there are still several trees and wires down in various parts of town.
