Last year at this time, hundreds of residents in the town of Orange were struggling through each day with downed trees and power lines littering their lawns and streets.
The restoration of electricity was uncertain as crews came in from several other states to help us out.
One of the most impressive things was the town’s emergency management team, putting into action for the first time their emergency response plans and teams that worked so well.
Members of Orange CERT stepped up and manned the shelter at High Plains where dozens upon dozens of residents came every day to take showers and/or charge their cell phones.
The town was a mess for a very long time, but everyone came together and made it bearable.
Were you in the dark last year? How long was it before your power was restored?
If Connecticut was hit by another hurricane tomorrow would you be ready for it?
