Hanna Causes Only Minor Problems in Connecticut

September 8, 2008

Connecticut is cleaning up after Tropical Storm Hanna blew quickly through the state.

Less than 9,000 customers of Connecticut Light and Power were without power Sunday morning. United Illuminating says only a few dozen customers didn’t have power.

Hanna dumped as much as 6 inches of rain as it rolled through Connecticut and up the coast late Saturday. The storm forced some festivals and fairs to shut down, and dampened some basements, but didn’t cause widespread destruction that was first feared.

There were tornado warnings in Fairfield County, but no damage was reported.

In Milford, Mayor James Richetelli Jr. says the shoreline community was prepared to open an emergency shelter, but “none of the weather conditions anticipated materialized here.”
