Nor'easter causes slight spike in outages in Conn.

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Power outages spiked slightly in Connecticut as a nor'easter hit the state just nine days after Superstorm Sandy raked the Northeast.

Connecticut Light & Power and United Illuminating reported 1,074 outages on Thursday morning, up slightly from Wednesday morning before the autumn snowstorm arrived. CL&P is a unit of Northeast Utilities and United Illuminating is a unit of UIL Holdings Corp.

As with Sandy, most of the outages were in shoreline towns that were hit by surging sea water from Long Island Sound last week and then early and heavy snow from the nor'easter on Wednesday evening and Thursday morning

CL&P announced Wednesday evening it completed restoration of power for the last few thousand customers in the hardest hit parts of southwestern Connecticut.

The utility said it set more than 1,000 poles, strung more than 100 miles of overhead lines and replaced 2,400 transformers and 5,000 cross arms.
