According to the CL&P website on Monday August 29th:
Heavy interest in the CL&P outage map has pushed our internet capacity to 100% utilization. To ensure everyone has access to important outage information, the map will be replaced by the table showing outage information by town.
According to that table at 1:30 PM on Monday August 29th 591,094 of their customers are without electricity. To keep those customers better informed CL&P have now started a "Hurricane Irene Info" page on Facebook, as well as a Twitter page.

With the remnants of Hurricane Irene leaving Connecticut, about 800 CL&P and contractor line and tree crews from as far away as Florida, Ohio and Michigan are now being deployed to start the restoration process. At the peak, the storm left more than 622,000 CL&P customers without power. This sets a record, surpassing the 477,000 CL&P customers who lost power from Hurricane Gloria in 1985.
