BRISTOL, Conn. (WTNH) — Around 300 tree crew workers from all over the region arrived at Lake Compounce Monday morning to use the park as a home base for restoring power to Connecticut residents.
This comes following the damage Tropical Storm Isaias caused statewide about a week ago. Their goal is to fully restore power by Tuesday evening.
Crews from 12 states and Canada made the journey to Bristol to help with ongoing storm cleanup.
The crews started to arrive around 6 a.m. Monday and headed out after breakfast and a safety briefing. Crews are expected to work for around 17-hours today.
