Connecticut took a serious hit from Hurricane Sandy. We are going to start compiling resources here for people within Connecticut or people hoping to stay informed on the situation in Connecticut. We will reassess later today as to whether an outside link would work better. It is our hope that grassroots efforts like ours will start up in CT shortly and that we can support those efforts.
