Widespread Power Outage Hits Westport

UPDATE A widespread power outage hit Westport early today.

Eversource said 1,252 customers were without power shortly before 7 a.m. All but a few had been restored several hours later.

Police and fire dispatchers reported receiving multiple alarms due to the outage beginning at about 6:40 a.m.

Areas impacted included the downtown area extending to the Norwalk line, where hundreds of customers were also reported without power.

There was no immediate explanation for the outage as rain and winds up to 27 mph buffeted the area.

Tonight, a tree branch down on Gault Park Drive forced Eversource to cut power to more than 100 homes while repairs were made.

All had power restored by 8 p.m., Eversource said.
