Lingering outages reported after Conn. storms
HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) -- Utility crews in Connecticut are working to restore power to residents left in the dark after strong storms toppled trees and flooded streets.
Connecticut Light & Power says nearly 3,000 customers were still without power late Saturday afternoon. The utility says service is expected to be fully restored by Saturday night.
Some 37,000 customers experienced outages following Friday afternoon's storms, which snapped branches and downed trees around the state.
The weather prompted organizers of the Travelers Championship golf tournament to suspend play until Saturday.
The area had seen three consecutive days of temperatures in the 90s before the storms. Cooler weather is expected for the weekend.
