Due to public safety concerns following Hurricane Sandy, East Haven has joined the cities of West Haven, New Haven and now North Haven in postponing Halloween "Trick or Treating" this Wednesday evening to next Wednesday, Nov. 7.
Town officials have noted that all three municipalities have roads that are not completely open, and a significant percentage of residents also remain without power.
In East Haven, some 73 percent of the town, or more than 10,000 customers, remain without power as of 6:15 p.m. on Tuesday. That number had been as high as 77 percent earlier this afternoon.
The East Haven Mayor's Offfice noted that the extra week "should allow all town and utility crews to get the three communities back to normal so all family's can enjoy Halloween in a safe and secure manner. "
Mayor Maturo also discusses the with East Haven Patch in a video posted in the gallery.
