Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton says cell phone service became spotty yesterday as the batteries on the towers drain. He asked Verizon to bring a temporary tower to be set up at Broadview Middle School.
Boughton declared a state of emergency yesterday due to the tropical storm. Danbury had the most Eversource outages reported yesterday, but he heard little from the utility. Boughton expressed his frustration on Twitter to Eversource over not having an estimate for when people would have their power restored.
While there were so-called make-safe crews staying at hotels in the City, Boughton says he hadn't seen any out working by late afternoon.
The City has posted a list of impacted roadways: https://www.danbury-ct.gov/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/stormdamage8520330.pdf
