The sheer overload of problems hitting Connecticut residents over the past several months has been enough to drive even the hardiest souls to their knees. And now this.

The coronavirus pandemic forced legions of office workers in Connecticut to work at home to stop the spread, but the strategy hit a major disruption when Storm Isaias knocked out power.

People are being warned to stay out of the Connecticut River north of Middletown after hundreds of thousands of gallons of sewage and untreated storm water from Massachusetts gushed into a tributary, the Chicopee River in Springfield, Mass., the state’s environmental agency says.

But if you’re just using your pan to cook the occasional burger, then you’re missing out; you really can cook pretty much anything in it.

The state's hospitalizations dipped by one on Wednesday, while the state also reported 115 new cases.

Receipts from a key subset of the state income tax were running $175 million ahead of expectations Tuesday based on an ongoing review of filings since the July 15 deadline. And those receipts, released by the legislature’s Office of Fiscal Analysis, can only increase between now and when the review wraps on Aug. 7.
