Connecticut Gov. Dannel P. Malloy suggests that people save receipts for expenses attributable to loss of power from the October 2011 Storm Alfred. United Way 2-1-1 is in the process of gathering information from residents.

Connecticut Light and Power is collecting information from its customers who lost power as a result of the October snowstorm.

CL&P is in the process of establishing a fund that may reimburse customers for some losses.

It has yet to be determined how that money will be distributed.

Governor Dannel Malloy is currently working to determine the best way to set up a system that is fair and timely when it comes to disbursing the money.

He expects to make an announcement within two weeks.

He suggests that people save receipts for expenses attributable to loss of power from the storm.

United Way 2-1-1 is in the process of gathering information from Connecticut residents who sustained losses caused by the October Snowstorm.

To access information about reimbursements, visit www.211ct.org and click on CL&P in the upper right corner of the page.

When you visit the CL&P part of the site, you will fill out a survey that asks for contact information, how many days you were without power, and what kinds of losses you are claiming, such as:

  • food loss and costs of eating meals at restaurants
  • costs of staying at a hotel
  • cost of gas for a power generator, as well as cost of flashlights, batteries and candles

lost wages

  • damage to property from fallen trees, tree limbs and branches
  • water damage caused by flooding
  • fire damage
  • and “other”

You also will have to include an estimate of total costs and indicate whether you have receipts for the expenses you are claiming.

Because so many people are registering their losses, there have been longer than usual call wait times and occasional delays in accessing 2-1-1 online.

Since 2-1-1 began this work earlier this month, more than 5,500 Connecticut residents have reported losses associated with the power outages by visiting www.211ct.org or calling 2-1-1.

If you wish to speak with a 2-1-1 call specialist to leave your storm-related information, dial 2-1-1 and staff is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

    Please stop calling it Storm Alfred. That is a made up name by a local TV station. There is nothing official from the National Weather Service. They do not name winter storms.
