Officials say as of 4:00 p.m. on Sunday, 590 residents in town remain without power.

Regarding generators, Hamden Mayor Curt Leng issued the following statement:

“Any generator that connects to your home’s wiring must be installed by a licensed electrician via a transfer switch to isolate it from the outside grid. If not, it can back-feed electricity to the outside power system, posing a serious threat to workers or the public. Please do not use a home generator that has not been properly installed.”
