(Hartford Courant) A new weather model is being used to show where a severe storm is mostly likely to damage the electrical grid in Connecticut. The system is a collaboration between the University of Connecticut and Connecticut Light & Power. A team of UConn environmental engineers overlaid weather forecasting data of wind and precipitation with CL&P data of downed power lines and other damage to the power grid from more than 100 storms since 2001.
