Power was restored to the central part of Westport late tonight but other areas remained in the dark.
Lights flickered on in the downtown area, along Post Road East and West and south of the Post Road at about 10:40 p.m.
But many areas north of the Post Road—along a line roughly running from Compo Road North to the Weston town line and east toward Fairfield—remained without power just before midnight. Outages continued in isolated areas south of the Post Road as well.
Areas on North Avenue south of Staples High School had power but north of the school was dark.
CL&P’s Web site said 2,090 of its 12,027 Westport customers were still without power shortly before midnight.
Cable television which had remained on throughout the outage in most of Westport went out in northern portions of the town as power was restored to other areas.
