From Ledyard EMD:
Eversource has three crews working in Ledyard this morning addressing the larger outages first. Due to damage they have found over the last few days, they cannot give Estimated Times for Restoration because in some cases it’s a relatively quick fix, and others that they think are quick, end up taking longer, thinking they have fixed the issue, only to find they cannot turn the circuit on because there is more damage down the circuit.

Power Out? Call Eversource at 800-286-2000
In case of an emergency, life threatening situation, downed line or if you are in imminent danger please call 911.
Tax Season is upon us and the scam artists are once again looking for a way to dupe unsuspecting individuals to provide confidential information. Be aware of emails and telephone calls purporting to be from the IRS claiming you have a refund or owe money.
The IRS Will Never:
• Call to demand immediate payment over the phone, nor will the agency call about taxes owed without first having mailed you a bill.
• Threaten to immediately bring in local police or other law-enforce...ment groups to have you arrested for not paying.
• Demand that you pay taxes without giving you the opportunity to question or appeal the amount they say you owe.
• Require you to use a specific payment method for your taxes, such as a prepaid debit card.
• Ask for credit or debit card numbers over the phone.
If you get a phone call from someone claiming to be from the IRS and asking for money and you don't owe taxes, here's what you should do:
• Do not give out any information. Hang up immediately.
• Contact TIGTA to report the call. Use their "IRS Impersonation Scam Reporting" web page or call 800-366-4484.
• Report it to the Federal Trade Commission. Use the "FTC Complaint Assistant" on FTC.gov. Please add "IRS Telephone Scam" in the notes.
• If you think you might owe taxes, call the IRS directly at 1-800-829-1040.
