Customers asked to call CVPS if power still out

first_imgOver 500 workers continued to work to restore power to the last 300 CVPS customers in Windham County Thursday morning.”We made good progress Wednesday, and with the light so visible at the end of the tunnel, we’re giving it all we’ve got yet again today,” said spokeswoman Christine Rivers. “Each repair is still coming slow, as crews continue to spend hours to restore power one or two customers at a time, but we expect every customer outage we are aware of to be restored by late tonight. Thus we encourage customers still without power to call 1-800-451-2877.”At daybreak Thursday, more than 75 contract lines crews were working with 40 CVPS line crews, 50 tree crews and hundreds of support staff to wrap up the $3 million restoration effort that began Friday.”This has been a long but amazing restoration effort. The ice and tree damage we’ve seen in Windsor and especially Windham County rivals anything we’ve seen in our service territory. And we could not have done this without the invaluable coordination and support of dozens of utilities and local businesses, and federal, state and local officials,” said CVPS President Bob Young. “We sincerely appreciate the outpouring of support we’ve seen from the customers, communities and businesses we serve. I cannot put into words how much we appreciate everyone’s efforts, patience and selflessness to restore normalcy to our customers. I also want to thank our employees, who have devoted themselves to customers while putting their own lives on hold.”CVPS estimates that it has resolved more than 1,200 separate problems on its system this week, in some cases rebuilding sections that were destroyed within Orange, Windsor and Windham counties. Over 80 poles were broken – more than 50 of those in Windham County alone, and thousands of trees brought down hundreds of lines.PLEASE CALLCVPS asked customers who are still without power as of 8 a.m. today to contact the company at 1-800-451-2877. Due to the extent of the damage in some areas that are affecting only single and small groups of customers, some without power may not be listed in the outage management system. As restoration efforts draw toward an end, the company wants to assure that no one is left without power.If customers see that others in their neighborhood have power, but they do not, CVPS asks that those customers switch their breakers off and on to assure the problem is not localized inside their home.The company also reminded customers that while service lines or overhead wires that run from a pole to a house or business are the utility’s responsibility, the service cable that runs along the side of the house is the customer’s responsibility.If those service cables are damaged, customers should contact an electrician. The service bracket that attaches the service line to the house is generally maintained by CVPS. However, the weather head, attached to the service cable, which prevents water damage to the wiring, is maintained by the customer’s electrician.last_img read more

New Nature Preserve Opens Near Shelbyville

first_imgSHELBYVILLE, Ind. — A nature preserve with century old trees is opened Thursday.Governor Mike Pence joined the Central Indiana Land Trust for a ribbon cutting at Meltzer Woods, a new nature preserve near Shelbyville that includes one of Indiana’s few old-growth forests – meaning it includes trees more than 150 years old that have been relatively undisturbed.Meltzer Woods is one of the few places Hoosiers can visit a forest that predates Indiana’s statehood, let alone (as in this case) the birth of our nation or even Columbus’ arrival in the Americas.Following the ribbon cutting, the preserve opened to the public for hiking, bird watching and enjoying.The preserve will be open seven days a week from dawn to dusk.last_img

Matthew Stockman/Getty Images/AFPWimbledon champion Novak Djokovic made it harder than it had to be, but rediscovered his poise in time to pull off a four-set victory over Tennys Sandgren at the US Open on Thursday.Djokovic, winner of the title in Flushing Meadows in 2011 and 2015, defeated the 61st-ranked American 6-1, 6-3, 6-7 (2/7), 6-2.ADVERTISEMENT ‘I want to help you’: Umpire’s chat with Kyrgios at US Open raises questions “It was just me being me — the other me that my first me doesn’t like,” Djokovic said of the loss of concentration that cost him the third set.“I thought I played very well for the first two and a half sets and then I just lost it mentally,” said Djokovic, who had saved two break points in the opening set and was never in danger in the second.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSJapeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for GinebraSPORTSTim Cone still willing to coach Gilas but admits decision won’t be ‘simple yes or no’“I got pissed off or something — at myself, my game or something.

But he couldn’t convert and it was Sandgren — who put together a sparkling quarter-final run at the Australian Open in January — who seized control in the tiebreaker, speeding to a 3-0 lead and claiming the set on his second opportunity.Djokovic regained control with a quick break for a 2-1 lead in the fourth. He broke again for 5-2 and clinched the win on his second match point when he patted a ball just out of Sandgren’s reach.Djokovic will take on 26th-seeded Richard Gasquet of France for a place in the last 16.The 31-year-old Serb, who missed last year’s US Open as he battled an elbow injury that finally required surgery, broke out of a prolonged slump with his 13th Grand Slam title at Wimbledon.ADVERTISEMENT MOST READ He followed that up with a victory over Roger Federer in the Cincinnati Masters final — both victories that he wasn’t expecting when he joined forces again with his old coach Marian Vajda with the aim of rounding into form in time for the last Grand Slam of the year.“It’s a work in progress still,” said Djokovic, seeded a modest sixth. “We are working daily on trying to perfect the game and put it together. Obviously the last couple months have been really, really good in terms of results. But we both still feel that I have lots of room for improvement.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next ‘High crimes and misdemeanors’: Trump impeachment trial beginslast_img read more
