At the Eversource Incident Command Center in Berlin, employees are working around the clock to try to restore power to tens of thousands of customers still in the dark since Sunday night's storm.

As of Monday afternoon, Eversource said it has restored power to more than 130,000 homes. More than 120,000 are still without power.  Eversource said the higher concentrations of storm-related damage are along the shoreline and Southeast Connecticut.

Hundreds of line crews and tree crews have been out since yesterday to restore power. The Incident Command Center in Berlin is monitoring and coordinating Eversource's response.

Eversource said this will be a multi-day outage for some customers, and encourages customers to take steps to prepare.
