CL&P officials have said repeatedly this week they expect to have nearly 99 percent of the power restored to all customers by Saturday.
With a weekend deadline quickly approaching 13 percent of Southbury residents remain without power at 10 a.m. Friday morning.
CL&P has also said, at the latest, everyone’s power will be back on by next Wednesday – some 10 days after Irene hit the region bringing with it heavy winds, downed trees and widespread power outages.
1,284 of the 9,850 Southbury households are without power, according to CL&P. There are over 150,00 households without power statewide.
