Fallen tree limb knocks out power to more than 600

A tree limb hit and broke an overhead power line Thursday night, March 13, in the vicinity of Skunk Lane, causing a loss of power for about 630 households, CL&P spokesman Mitch Gross said Friday morning.

He said the utility received a call at about 6:30 and crews had all but 20 customers back online within the hour. Wilton police reported the power had to be cut for about an hour to get the remaining customers back online. Their power was restored by 10:30, Mr. Gross said.
