Did c l & p shut off power? Does anyone know who or why power is off? I need a factual response?

I really hate to post this, "but" the time it took to open this major road was IMO not given the proper amount of urgency. Went through at 6am today when 2 CT trucks, one on each side, were doing final clean-up with no warning signs out and no RPD. That sent cars into oncoming traffic. The state has safety practices that leaves a lot to be desired. And yes, I have called CT DOT in the past to make them aware of some dangerous work sites.

Wind blew very, very hard from the SSW at 430am on Thursday am. This tree had been protected from the south and west by many others that were removed to make way for the ugly oversize new structure across from Casagmo. Were roots also disturbed by extensive excavation at that unfortunate site? Developer might (should?) be held responsible for costs related to this "sympathetic" tree toppling. Don't blame the tree crews for following procedures designed to protect themselves from dangerous electrical wires.
