CL&P Reports New Westport Power Outages
Connecticut Light & Power reported new Westport power outages today affecting almost 200 homes. But by early afternoon all but a few customers had power restored.
The problems came as Westport First Selectwoman Diane Goss Farrell, responding to a plea from state officials, urged town residents to immediately reduce electrical usage to prevent new outages.
According to the CL&P Web site, as of 2 p.m, five Westport customers out of 12,027 served were without power. As many as 184 homes were reported without power beginning at 10 a.m.
AT 4 a.m., CL&P had reported power restored to all homes following Thursday’s outage.
The Westport Fire Department reported an outage at about 9 a.m. affecting a portion of Saugatuck Shores.
It could not be immediately determined if this was the affected area cited by CL&P or whether the Westport outages were scattered elsewhere.
