Cheshire In Aftermath of Sandy: "We Fared Pretty Well."

Cheshire Police Spokesman Lt. James Fasano said that fewer than a half dozen residents used the town's emergency shelter at the Youth Center on South Main Street during Hurricane Sandy. The shelter will be closing Tuesday morning.

"We fared pretty well," Fasano said, when asked how the town had weathered the storm.

Fasano said there are no road closures in town.  But he said trees are blocking parts of two lightly-traveled roads:

-Rice Avenue near the intersection with Vanessa Court in the northwest corner of town.

- Bradford Drive at Chantil Circle in the town's South End..

Outage levels for Connecticut Light and Power customers overnight in Cheshire were above 1,700.  But as of 10:15 a.m., there were 390 outages in town, mostly in the area of Marion Road, Fasano said.

All town offices and facilities in Cheshire will reopen at noon. There will be no trash collection on Tuedsay and pick up of garbage for the remainder of the week will pushed back a day.

Schools in Cheshire are closed Tuesday. There is no word yet on whether they will remain closed on Wednesday,
