Progress made in Seymour power restoration

SEYMOUR - Connecticut Light & Power is reporting that the majority of residents have power back in Seymour.
Out of 7,469 customers, there was still 907 customers without power as of noon Friday, or 12 percent.
School is back in session today, after being closed for four days, according to Superintendent of Schools MaryAnne Mascolo.
First Selectman Paul Roy said Thursday CL&P crews were working in the areas of Colony Street, Tomlinson Road, Spruce Brook Road, parts of Route 34 and along Main Street to restore power to the remaining residents and businesses still in the dark.
Roy said Seymour Middle School remains open as an emergency shelter for residents to take showers. However, with school back in session Friday, Nov. 4, showers will only be available from 4 to 9 p.m., when students are and staff are gone.
Also, to help residents get rid of branches, brush and other debris littering their yards from the storm, the town transfer station will be open later than usual on Friday and Saturday. Residents can haul their debris to the Silvermine Road facility from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. both days.
