LEBANON, CT (WFSB) -

Thousands of people continued a cleanup on Tuesday following storms that socked the state on Sunday night.

Sixty-two percent of Eversource customers in Lebanon do not have power.

People were stopping by the Lebanon Green Market on Tuesday morning to get a warm breakfast sandwich and a cup of coffee.

First Selectman Betsy Petrie said it's the town's first priority to make sure residents are safe following a storm.

"We'll be talking today about opening a shelter here in town for charging stations and showers," Petrie said. "Route 87 is still closed going into Columbia and that's a big road for us."

She posted to social media on Tuesday that the town's high school is the designated shelter. It'll be open for showers, cell phone charging and water from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.

She said she has not seen Eversource crews roving around town just yet.

However, she said she knows they are working hard and will get there soon.
