STAMFORD, Conn. —The city of Stamford remains in a state of emergency Thursday as the clean-up after Hurricane Sandy continues, Mayor Michael Pavia said.
There are 13,850 Connecticut Light & Power customers in the city without power, which is 24 percent of Stamford, the utility company reports. To help people cope without power, the city opened a comfort center at Westhill High School, and the Ferguson Library has extended its hours for residents.
Westhill, 125 Roxbury Road, will supply people with a place to shower, charge electronic devices and pick-up water. People should bring their own toiletries, and the station will be open from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday, the release said.
There are still many roads impassable and Connecticut Light & Power and city crews are working to restore safety and power to the Stamford, the release said.
The city parks and beaches were still closed Thursday as the cleanup process continues.
Aquarian Water tested the city’s public water supply and deemed it potable.
State Attorney General George Jepsen said he has received several complaints of price gouging and urged residents to call his office if they experience it, 860-808-5318, the release said.
