It's the fourth day since Hurricane Sandy struck and news from CL&P this morning was that 60% of Monroe is still without power. The timetable for the entire state is for power to be restored by Monday or Tuesday.
The question everyone wants answered is where the crews working in Monroe are today. This is difficult information to get as Department of Public Works and CL&P crews work on the fly, tackling areas of a town where hundreds of trees have fallen and even more could come down.
Monroe Patch Facebook visitors were asked to share information of sightings of crews with their neighbors and Patch will add any info it gets throughout the day. Here's what people are saying so far:
Gary Zenobia: Saw them on East Village. And also Route 111 by Masuk
Terri McGrath Bhatt: Saw a CL&P truck and crew on Cross Hill near Rite Aid working on transformer.
Gloria Ganino: 2 Asplundh trucks on Wheeler near 111 and Millbrook Terrace.
Briget Burr Stronge: I just saw two Asplundh tree trucks/crews driving on 110 in Monroe near the fire station. I consider that a good sign!
Vickie Clarke Mass: They're on east village cutting up tree by cemetery.
Heather Keegan Kohler: They were on 25 & 1 on Judd this morning.
Patricia Tierney-Cascone: I saw tree crews on Elm st and old tannery near the green.
