A group of residents have sued the Town of East Hampton, Long Island, to block developers of an offshore wind project from burying a high-powered transmission cable under Wainscott Beach.

Representatives from offshore wind developers Orsted and Eversource met with residents to address their concerns about a high-powered transmission cable that would come ashore from eastern Long Island.

Elected officials across Connecticut testified before state regulators Monday that electric utility Eversource repeatedly failed to provide critical updates on power restoration in the aftermath of Tropical Storm Isaias, which knocked out power to hundreds of thousands of customers earlier this year.
