HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — About 63,460 homes and businesses in Connecticut remain without power six days after Superstorm Sandy knocked down scores of trees and power lines across the state.

The number of outages on Sunday was down from about 75,000 earlier in the day and from more than 85,000 on Saturday. At the peak of the outages on Tuesday, about 625,000 homes and businesses were in the dark.

Connecticut Light & Power and United Illuminating vowed that 95 percent or more of their customers will be reconnected to the electricity grid by Monday or Tuesday.

A large number of outages remain in several towns in the southwestern part of the state including Greenwich, Stamford, Fairfield and Easton.

CL&P is reporting about 45,030 outages and UI says it still has about 18,430 outages.
