As of noon Tuesday, about 800 Connecticut Light and Power customers in Durham and Middlefield are still without power as a result of Hurricane Sandy, according to the company's outage map.
While no restoration estimates are being provided at this time, CL&P crews are working to restore.
"CL&P line and tree crews are currently working to clear roads and wires with the assistance of public works personnel. As soon as debris is cleared, restoration work will begin. We expect that to be today. Because of the nature of the damage, this may take several days. Please prepare accordingly," a message on the Town of Durham's Facebook page reads.
To assist residents during those restoration efforts, both towns have set up emergency centers where residents can go if they are without power.
In Durham, the Durham Activity Center will be open from noon until 8 p.m. The town is providing residents with water, Meals Ready To Eat and recharging stations for phones or computers.
In Middlefield, the Community Center will be open although no supplies are being provided at this time.
For any residents who wish to shelter overnight, an emergency shelter is open at Haddam Killingworth Middle School at 451 Route 81, Killingworth.
The Red Cross shelter is providing cots, water and food as well as recharging stations. All pets must be in crates or carriers (bring their supplies). Transportation to the shelter is available by calling 860-301-3564.
School officials have yet to make a decision to reopen schools on Wednesday. They are awaiting feedback from road crews on the condition of roads in both towns.
