— Thousands of customers remained without power as of Wednesday morning following Sunday night's intense storms.

Eversource reported more than 18,700 outages as of 7 a.m., mostly in eastern Connecticut towns.

United Illuminating only reported 40, mostly in Fairfield.

Sunday's storms brought trees down onto power lines, homes and roads across the state.

Eversource said its crews continue to work around the clock to make repairs. It pulled in crews from out-of-state to help.

It expected to have power fully restored by Wednesday afternoon.
